Can a woman correct the recitation of the imam during prayers
If they're the only 2 people e.g. a husband and wife when praying and the husband miss his ayah.

Yes, the wife can correct her husband's recitation during prayers.
According to the most correct opinion of Ahnaf, the voice of a woman is not awrah. So it doesn’t nullify the prayer. (¹)But if there is a non-mahram, then she should clap.
Only Allah knows best
