    Are these sentences natural? May 14

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. How much percentage do we have in this project?

    2. What percentage are we in the project?


    3. Just wondering what brought on that strategy change?


    Thanks,
    MG

    I don't understand what 1) or 2) actually mean. A percentage of money? How invested are we emotionally in the project? 3) is a statement, not a question, so no question mark required (and for a full sentence it should start with "I'm".)

    Our firm participates large engineering projects with other firms. We were talking about a project and I wanted to know what percentage of the project is handled by our firm. How would you say those sentences given the context?

    Thanks.
