    Are these sentences natural? May 15

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Do it as if you were doing it for yourself.

    2. You must be no where with that project as yet. (I am predicting a personís work on a project)

    3. Who do we tell about a printer problem?

    Thanks,
    MG.

    They're OK. But you could omit "as" in #2.
