can you hep me whit the below phrases? Is saxon genitive corret?
Everyone’s body temperature is 37° C
It’s a 700 kilometers’ journey.
Where is the nearest chemist's? (" 's " means the shop)
Adding -'s is OK in most of the phrases, but not the one about the journey. It needs to be:
"It’s a 700-kilometer journey."
We can use "number + singular noun" with a hyphen, and that works as an adjective.
