  • English -

    These are all semi-regular nouns. They're not completely irregular (i.e., child, man, woman, ox, etc.), but they don't form plurals by simply adding -s.

    Think of each noun, regular or irregular, as having four forms:

    desk (s), desk's (s. poss.)
    desks (pl), desks' (pl. poss.)

    So ... I'll do the first one for you:

    shelf, shelf's
    shelves, shelves'

    Now ... how will you write the other three forms of the other two? If you're not sure, be sure to use a dictionary to find the plural -- http://www.dictionary.com
