Answer:

crickets'

Explanation:

Here are many forms of the word cricket. I've included non-possessive forms and possessive forms to show you how similar these words are, but the difference between these four forms is crucial.

singular:

cricket

one single cricket

plural:

crickets

more than one cricket/multiple crickets

singular possessive:

cricket's

belonging to one single cricket

plural possessive:

crickets'

belonging to more than one cricket/multiple crickets


Here's an example of how the plural possessive form of cricket could be used in a sentence:

If you walk by the pond at night, you'll hear all the crickets' legs rubbing together, creating a chirping noise.

Putting the apostrophe (') at the end of the plural non-possessive form shows that an object or objects belongs to multiple crickets.
