    twenty-something

    1. Is there any other ways to say "A girl who is twenty-something?

    Can we just say " a girl who is about /over/around twenty"

    2.Are the following sentence correct?

    "At the gate were standing a crowd of people"
    " In front of the door waited a lot of fans."
