Boys and girls finals or boy’s and girl’s finals?


Assuming you are talking about the finals for boys and girls, then you need apostrophes. To find the right place to put the apostrophes, find the owner(s) and put the apostrophe after that word. If you sound an extra 's' then include that too.

Boys' and girls' finals

However, if you are talking about one boy and one girl, then you would say:

boy's and girl's finals

With no apostrophe, there is no ownership - and I don't think that's what you mean.


Thank you!
