Do these sentences mean the same thing?
A. The expressions on the faces of the workers were enough for him to guess what had happened.

A. is the better answer, because an "expression" can be something verbal (something that someone says). "Oh my God!" is an expression. "Facial expression" is the LOOK on someone's face, their unspoken reaction. So B is not as clear. "The expressions on the workers' faces" is also ok (and a bit faster to say).
