A missed apostrophe error can be harder to spot, with my ONE rule system it's plain sailing! Can you see where it should be, good people? One mistake, two mistakes, three mistakes - STOP! Something fishy here. It's a plural, nothing is missing. Scattergun strikes. In fact all are plurals and none need the apostrophe Even the Queen can get it wrong. 'celebrating it is one hundredth'? It's a plural. See sidebar on page about possessives. Poor kid. All alone at the party! That is one very lucky kid! Oh, the irony! A missing apostrophe; shortened from 'it is'.
