Say I have a quote within a quote, and inside of the inner quote there is a sentence with a plural possessive, so that there is an apostrophe after the "s." How do I distinguish between the apostrophe acting as a plural possessive or the apostrophe acting as a single quote, ending the quote within the quote?
