I have no idea how this answer was correct and think I may be missing an explanation. I assumed it would mean "he lets go (based on the a ending of lascia meaning he lets go of) of what (based on che meaning that or what) I explain (spiego) to you (ti). Anyone got any ideas how I could have reached the correct solution?
Allow me to explain :)) Lascia has two forms: the third person singular in the present indicative tense as you correctly state in your post "he/she/it leaves/lets go of" BUT it also has an imperative (command) form which relates to the second person singular of the imperative tense and conveys the meaning of "You leave (allow, permit) me to explain" Hope I have explained that ok to you ;)
