How would you refer to the sub-modifiers/adverbs (so) in sentence 1,2,3.

a) so in sentences 1,2 and 3

b) so's in sentences 1,2 and 3

c) the so's in sentence 1,2 and 3

d) the so in sentence 1,2 and 3

e)...... type your answer


You could use either "sos" or "so's" - there's a broader discussion of when it's appropriate to use an apostrophe to pluralise here.

But I'd say the best way would be so avoid pluralising the word "so" altogether.
