    Question Is it Grammatical?

    Could someone tell me if this sentence is grammatical or not, as well as any mistakes within it?

    "That is a loud enough volume on the radio."

    1. That is a loud enough volume on the radio.

    2. I was sort of disappointed in Obie's performance at the race.
    The first is a bit clumsy. Better would be: The volume on the radio is high enough.
    The second is OK, but very colloquial. "By" would be better than "in".

    Kat93, please don't edit your first post after someone has replied. MikeNewYork's response now looks very odd because he has quoted your post which includes a Sentence 2, but now your first post doesn't have a Sentence 2.

    Only edit minor errors like typos or missing words, don't delete whole sentences!

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
