Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You have a breathing rate of something. That is a posessive. On top of that, the something is plural. Therefore you need the plural possessive. http://www.meredith.edu/grammar/plural.htm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you for your answer, but I still can't get it. What I mean is that breathing rate of children is the double of the rate of adults breathing rate. Would it be right :to say, " children's breathing rate is twice as much as adults' " ?
