    Are these sentences natural? March 9

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. My only concern if that what if we bought you the game system and you did not follow your study schedule.

    2. Did I ask too much from you by wanting to play with you?

    3. How is it any of your business?

    Thanks,

    MG.

    1) perhaps: "My only concern is, what if we bought you the game system and you did not follow your study schedule?"
    2) this makes sense to me but the repetition sounds a little strange. Perhaps: "Did I ask too much from you by wanting us to play together?"
    3) this is fine.
