    Default Are these sentences natural? Feb 10

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?
    1. Why donít we have any example of frugality in this sequence?

    2. Why are there no examples of frugality in this sequence?

    3. I have always had a trouble with this file system.

    Thanks,
    MG.
