    meaning of loose or s.th?

    I would say: "If you pick an apple and loose it, it falls."
    Should I replace loose with quit or something or it works well?
    Would you plz tell me how to use them on occasion?
    Thanks,
    ata

    Yes. On this planet and due to gravity, that is exactly what happens.

    Why do you write: "I would say" rather than "I say" ?
    I think the simple present tense works better in grammar, thanks,

    Raymott said 'let go of (it)', not 'let it go'.

    I found "and let it go, it falls" in google with the repetition of 3170 times, but the repetition of "and let go of, it falls" is zero in google, so I think the statement "if you pick an apple and let it go, it falls" works.
