Subject: use of apostrophe


I am trying to convince some developers that an
apostrophe is for use for a contraction or to show
possession. They are of the impression that the
plural form of acronyms also needs an apostrophe. MoS
and I say no.

These are the examples:

The SKUs will need to be determined.

The PCs will be shipped in separate boxes.

Mike
