Hint: Noun: Plural noun is a word that indicates that there is more than one person, animal, place or thing. When we talk about more than one of anything we will be using plural nouns. In plural nouns, we simply add s, es, or ies in the end.

Complete answer:
Option A) In the 1920’s, women, often called flappers wore knee-length dresse’s and cut their hair in a short bob – This is an incorrect answer because “dresse’s” is an incorrect word, we use apostrophe before s when we have singular nouns. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option B) In the 1920s, women, often called flapper’s, wore knee-length dress’s and cut their hair in a short bob – is an incorrect answer because the spelling of dress’s is incorrect it should be dresses instead of dress’s and the plural of 1920s should be 1920’s and the plural form of flapper is flappers not flapper’s . Thus, this option will be considered as an incorrect answer.
Option C) In the 1920’s, women, often called flappers’, wore knee-length dresses and cut their hair in a short bob – is an incorrect option because the plural form of flapper is flappers not flappers’ and this is not an appropriate answer. Thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option D) No change – is the correct answer because the given sentence in the question is already a correct answer and does not require any change. So, according to the rules the correct option is ‘no change’. Thus, this is the correct answer.
In the 1920’s, women, often called flappers, wore knee-length dresses and cut their hair in a short bob.

Thus, correct answer is D

Note:
In this question we have to understand the meaning of plural nouns and how we use apostrophe. According to general rule, the plurals of nouns, abbreviations, or dates made up of numbers use only ’s’ or 'es', if the noun in question forms it's plural with -es and no apostrophe.
