Surely planet's, the singular possessive.

  • I thought so. It's just whenever I typed planet's, Word autocorrected me. I agree, it is more of a technology question than grammar. Thank you anyway. – Sandhya Krish Apr 20 '15 at 16:24

    @SandhyaKrish That’s just because Word’s auto-‘correct’ function has been told that anything that comes after “one of the” must be plural. Never rely on autocorrect. Computers do not and cannot grasp the complexity of human language. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 20 '15 at 16:31
  • Ha, yes, thank you. I figured out how to turn it off. – Sandhya Krish Apr 20 '15 at 16:32
  • @Mari-LouA Appreciated. – Marius Hancu Apr 20 '15 at 18:14
  • @SandhyaKrish Really no big deal. – Marius Hancu Apr 20 '15 at 18:14
