"India, China and South Africa have improved their ranking from the previous edition"


"India, China and South Africa have improved their rankings from the previous edition"

Which one is correct?

Also please correct the title of this question if it is grammatically incorrect and also this sentence.

  • If you were to write:*Peter, Paul and John have bought new cars*, readers would conclude that each had bought a new car. On the other hand, if you wrote that they *had bought a new car", it would sound as though they had combined to buy a single car among them. The same principle applies to your example.
