There are two alternative pronounciations for the word-T can pronounce or not

I've done it both ways. The problem is they both sound right to me, so I'm not sure which I would use naturally in a sentence.

i don"t think that emphasis here is on the pronounciation of the 'T' or not...but on the auxiliary 'do' because often can be pronouced with the 'T' or without it....yet, the sentence n1 is correct with or wihout "do" because the use of "do" = insisting on ofTen
it's BIT tricky
