Re: Common Errors in English
In the first one, if you meant "nine years' experience," that is
correct. It needs the possessive, because what it is saying is "nine

"Nine years' experience" does not mean "nine years of experience." It means "the experience of nine years." _That's_ why it requires the possessive.
