Determine if the following sentences employ the correct use of commas and apostrophes.TRUE=correct FALSE=incorrect
1. After discussing the woman's current diagnosis with the other doctors', it was recommended that the patient undergo a cholecystectomy.

Answer:
FALSE
because I feel there doesn't need to be an apostrophe on doctors and maybe not on woman either.

  • Grammar - ,

    The apostrophe needs to be there on "woman's" but not on "doctors"

    In this sentence, "woman" is in the possessive form because it's HER diagnosis. There is nothing for the doctors to own, though, so it's not a possessive word here.

    If you are confused about when to use possessive forms and when to use plain plurals, check here:
