    Dear,

    how tackle the question tag of these sentences :-

    a) Let's go away right now, .............................?
    B) Let us go away right now. ............................?
    Is it possible to use (do) for ordinary present simple
    or tackle them according to the function using other
    auxilaries as shall -can - will ......

    thanks in advance

    I would too, though I'd forgive someone who wasn't sure if they said 'OK?' .
