    Are these sentences correct?

    Are they all correct?

    1) I doubted the package would be here before Friday.
    2) I doubted if the package will be here before Friday.

    1) I think we cannot be asking that much of him.
    2) I think it is asking too much of him.
    3) I think it is that might be asking that much of him.

    You can rephrase this as: I think we cannot ask that much of him.
