hello! i'd like to know which is the head in this noun phrase:

"the features needed to protect an operating system from users programs"

for me it is features, but is it possible to have more than a head? since the exercise says "underline the head or heads" if so, which is the case in which i can have more than one head?

thanks!!!

We can't help you to answer exercise questions. You need to show your teacher what you can do on your own.

Please note my amendments to your post in red. Remember the rules of written English:

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
- End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
