    "Sic" is Latin for "thus" and means "intentionally so written" here, signifying that the preceding text is meant to be read as is, and not corrected should you find something wrong with it.

    Your answer is basically correct, with two more corrections!

    answer: The mayors [sic] and their wives were invited on a tour of the state buildings.

    Put a space after "mayors."
    Italicize the letters "sic."
    Put a period at the end of the sentence.
