Are these sentences natural? Jan 13
Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?
1. Please decide about a topic you want to talk about in the next meeting.
2. Is it possible for us to get a temporary login to the website?
3. I just saw your twin in the mall (I meant I saw a person looking just like him)

To my "ear" they sound fine. I've heard people say these very sentences - but that does not make them correct.
To my "eye", however, it's another matter.
You repeat the word "about" twice in the first sentence. I wouldn't do this.
Please decide about a topic you want to discuss in the next meeting.

I just saw your twin in the mall (only if you were inside of the mall). Otherwise, I would say - I just saw your twin at the mall.
