    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Wow, I could have sworn that it was real. ( was talking about a fake snake)

    2. I am struggling to solve the following problem with simulation.


    3. How much does it cost, on average, to convert a free parking lot to paid parking?


    Thanks,
    MG

    All of them sound great, except "with simulation" in 2. You might try:

    I am struggling to solve the following problem by using a/the simulation. (The simulation will help fix the problem.)
    I am struggling to solve the following problem with the simulation. (The simulation is broken.)
