Hi-

For this problem, this split is actually irrelevant as C is the only choice which correctly uses “better” rather than “best” to make a comparison between two things.

To answer your question though, you would use ‘s when the suitor is described as singular, such as “each” suitor. If the sentence says “the two suitors’ offers” this would be correct because suitors is plural being modified by “two”

I hope this helps
