Explanation:
This is a suggestion, a rhetorical question. You canplay with this phrase. There is no obligation to use an interrogative / question form in your English version.

How about going to the swimming pool tomorrow?

Why don't we go ...?

Let's go swimming/to the swimming pool tomorrow.

Never the less, given that all your questions are missing the same element, I suspect that this is a homework exercise. If someone else does it for you, then you won't get much beenfit from it. Go back through what your teacher has explained he/she wants you to do and have a go! There's nothing wrong with making mistakes. Many mistakes are highly instructive you know!

This is the former teacher (and mother?) in me coming out.
