“Let's” vs. “lets”: which is correct?
Lets now see how it can be done.
Let's now see how it can be done.
Is sentence 1 wrong? If so, why? I have read the answers to "Let's" vs. "lets": which is correct? but they don't seem to discuss the case when this word comes at the start of a sentence. It says you can test it by replacing "Let's/Lets" with "Let us" and seeing if the sentence still makes sense, but "Let us now see how it can be done" sounds odd to me.
Even if "Let's" is correct here, is there any context where it would be correct to use "Lets" without an apostrophe at the start of a sentence?
