No. If it was son's, you would only have one son and Matej is his friend. But you have more then one, so you have sons. And your SONS' friend is Matej.

I had this question using words that I had to click on, and "sons" without an apostrophe was the only choice, and it's not correct. It has to be "sons'", as you said. Easy fix, they just need to add a card that says "sons'" or add a card with "'s" on it.

Hello DL, I had the same problem. The only available tile is sons. Could you add sons' or just ' ?

There is definitely an apostrophe missing - it should be either "son's" or "sons'. " - so, with an apostrophe either before the s or after it. My Czech isnt good enough to say which of the two apostrophes are right.

Matěj is a friend of our son. Not sure why this is not accepted?
