    see's or is it sees?

    I am having a tough time finding the correct way to say the following sentence:

    Through basketball she see’s a way out
    of her present situation of living in the Marcy
    Projects with her grandmother.

    Please help!

    Simple Present - 3rd person singular - add an s.
    She sees a way out.

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Cheers!

    I'm not a teacher, but I believe that it is "sees."--the apostrophe is not necessary. Here's a link that explains the use of the apostrophe: Apostrophe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The apostrophe is used to show the possessive case of a word or the omission of letters in a word.
