a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 4
 
Replace 'I' with 'me'.

After the word 'let', pronouns are always used in objective case.

In the same way, after prepositions like between,except etc, pronouns are always used in objective case.

The correct sentence should be: The Manager ordered the watchman to let the boys and me go in.

e.g. (i) Let you and me.

(ii) Let you and him.

(iii) Between you and me

(iv) Between him and me.
