I was wondering if this sentence should add on 你们的 nǐmende before 作业 zuòyè.

Would it be incorrect to say:

你们要星期五以前完成作业。?

Not correct, sorry. Prepositional phrases like 星期五以前 must be before the predicate, not in the middle of it.

Why is the "all" not translated in the Chinese? Shouldn't it be translated as 你们都?

Why do I need the 必须 here?
