Mensagem:  Until proven the contrary, to me, both are correct.  That is, if I had to answer the question from a test, I would pick  the one that stated "both are right".
I bet my bottom Dollar in this.


Notice that the pronunciation is the same for certain possessives:

My friend’s house = the house of my friend = 1 friend
My friends’ house = the house of my friends = 2 or more friends
You can usually distinguish whether the speaker is referring to one or two friends by listening to the context of what the speaker says.

I hope it helps. Ah, thanks for promoting me! I am not a teacher (just a learner), but it´s great to have such a cumpliment! thanks.
