    Default Are these sentences natural? May 23

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. It also made great strides in client penetration and quality control.

    2. It is hitting strides on all fronts.


    3. It is a matter of indifference for me. ( wanted to say that I donít care about the choices in that case)


    Thanks,
    MG

    This sounds illegal
    .
    And painful.

    "Market penetration" is sometimes heard.
