every member's wallet

Post by azz » Tue Jun 09, 2020 2:49 am

a. Every member's wallet was stolen from the locker room.
b. Each member's wallet was stolen from the locker room.
c. All members' wallets were stolen from the locker room.


Which of these imply that there were no members who didn't have a wallet? That each and every member had a wallet?

Many thanks

I don't think any of them imply that. If that was the implication, I missed it. I took all three to mean that all the wallets in the member's locker room were stolen.
