    Lest diemma

    Hi guys,

    You would say that this guy is mad and asking tge same qurstions again and again but please help. It is my curiosity and eagerness yo know. Pkease check these sentences.

    1 We will do it lest he should avoid it.

    2 I didn't call him lest he should come at my house.

    Can we also use past after "Lest", I read it on a blog, it is making me confused, is it up to us whether we want to use "Should", after lest or not? Is there anyother way too to use "Lest", sorrrrryyyyyy.

    I appreciate and respect your curiosity, but another round of "lest" questions is not going to help you. You can live a long, happy life without ever using the word "lest".

    I use the bare infinitive after "lest".
