    Are these sentences natural? May 6

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. She has a veto over house matters.
    2. First you need to bring the water to a boil.
    3.She will resign as the leader? (also not sure if an article would be required if it was ‘leader of the party’)

    Thanks,
    MG.

    One and two are good, I agree the article should not necessarily be there in 3.
