In the phrase "the boys' rackets", is it implied that each boy has one racket or more than one racket?
Should each boy have one racket, how would this be expressed/written?
Should each boy have more than one racket, how would this be expressed/written?
Another doubt regarding a similar phrase would be:
"the boys' mind/minds" - only one mind is possible per boy, but were we to use the plural word "minds", would this imply (grammatically) that each had more than one?
