I wouldn't have thought this was a big deal but this paper is worth over half my semester grade so: In the essay there are 2 words im unsure of. They are "Society's problems." The problem I have is how to write "society's"...Do I write it as "Society's" or "Societies". I would have thought the first but then sombody told me the second one so now I don't know. Thank you very much in advance for any help!

  • English -

    The problems belong to society, right? That means that you're using the singular possessive noun. Since it's possessive, it needs an apostrophe.

    Therefore: society's problems.

    In contrast, to use societies, you'd need a sentence something like this:

    Many societies throughout history have struggled with the same problems we still have today.
