    It says "Plural possessive;" so I think the noun (Friend) would turn into plural (Friends) and then into possessive form (Friends'). The possessive form of any word that ends with S would be " Nouns' ". Peoples' is wrong, because people itself is a plural noun. So its possessive would be People's. Hope it helps.

    I took the test, my answers were Friends', Boxes' and Houses' and I got them right. So you were right. I just didn't understand plural possessive form completely.
