What is the plural form of "human"? What is the past tense of "rise"? Also, does this sentence make sense? "Why are dogs humans' companions?" Thanks!

    I agree with Katisha that the sentence makes sense, but it's awkward (at least as far as AE construction is concerned). I would also say, "why are dogs companions to humans/human beings?" However, I definitely wouldn't say, " "a dog is the best friend of a man"

    I'd say, "A dog is man's best friend!" (that's the way I've always heard it expressed in AE).

    But he is asking a question no?

    So wouldn't it be..

    "Why is it that a dog is man's best friend?"
