      Let Helen come here

    • B.

      I want her to come here

    Correct Answer
    A. Let Helen come here
    Explanation
    The phrase "Let Helen come here" implies that the speaker is giving permission or expressing a desire for Helen to come to the specified location. It suggests that the speaker is open to Helen's presence and wants her to be present. The phrase also indicates that the speaker may have some authority or control over the situation, as they are allowing Helen to come.

    • A.

    • B.

      Let him rest.

    Correct Answer
    B. Let him rest.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Let him rest" because the pronoun "him" is used to refer to a male person, while "he" is used as the subject of a sentence. Therefore, "Let him rest" is the correct phrase to indicate that someone should be allowed to take a break or relax.

    Correct Answer
    B. Let's buy the house
    Explanation
    The given correct answer suggests that the speaker is expressing their interest and desire to purchase the house. The phrase "Let's buy the house" implies that the speaker is enthusiastic about the idea and is suggesting that they should proceed with the purchase. The other statements also convey a similar sentiment, expressing interest and a desire to buy the house, but the correct answer is more direct and assertive in its suggestion.

    • B.

      Don't let he know

    Correct Answer
    A. Don't let him know
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't let him know" because the pronoun "him" is the correct object form to use after the verb "let." Using "he" would be grammatically incorrect in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    We should solve this as soon as possible.

    • A.

      Do let's solve this immediately

    • B.

      Let solve this immediately

    Correct Answer
    B. Let solve this immediately
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Let solve this immediately". This answer is correct because it uses the imperative form of the verb "solve" along with the adverb "immediately" to express the urgency and importance of solving the problem as soon as possible. The phrase "Let's" is a contraction of "let us", which is a common way to make suggestions or give commands in English. Therefore, the answer accurately conveys the idea that the problem needs to be solved without delay.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A doctor should see him.

    • A.

      Let a doctor see him

    • B.

      Let's a doctor see him

    Correct Answer
    A. Let a doctor see him
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Let a doctor see him" because it is the grammatically correct option. The phrase "let a doctor see him" is a suggestion or a request for someone to allow a doctor to examine the person in question. The other options, "Let's a doctor see him" and "A doctor should see him" are grammatically incorrect. The first one is missing the verb "let" and the second one is missing the verb "let" and the apostrophe in "let's."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    We should not stay here.

    • A.

      Let's stay here

    • B.

      Let's not stay here

    Correct Answer
    B. Let's not stay here
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Let's not stay here" because it aligns with the initial statement "We should not stay here." Both statements express the idea of not staying in the current location. The other option, "Let's stay here," contradicts the initial statement and does not provide a solution to the problem of not staying in the current location.
