    Re: Query

    Whenever a contraction is made using two words, we always indicate this by using the ' sign to show that part of a word has been omitted:

    It is : it's
    He is : he's
    who is : who's
    he can not : he can't
    he would not : he wouldn't

    Don't confuse let's as above, with lets as in, He has a flat/apartment/house which he lets out by the week or month (ie people can rent this accommodation from him.)
