If’s, but’s, maybe’s and possibly’s.

If’s, but’s, maybe’s and possibly’s.

If a plural word is being quoted in a sentence, it is often written with an apostrophe, though the apostrophe can be omitted if there would be confusion.

You can argue forever against the if’s, but’s and maybe’s, and undoubtedly we need to work on improving our conversion rate.

Improve your written English.

Here are some simple ways to improve your written English:

1. Avoid slang words such as gonna, woulda, coulda, coz, guyz, boyz, bro, etc. Although these are common in spoken English they should never be used in your writing.

2. Avoid texting abbreviations such as u, r, ur, lol, omg, etc. It gives the impression that you are lazy and poorly educated.

3. Always capitalise the first person pronoun ‘I’ even if it is in the body of a sentence.
