    Are these sentences natural? April 14

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Not only does he provide me with technical support but also helps me with my stress management.

    2. I was trying to think how you would use / would be using this information in your presentations.

    3. I just wanted to do that to make them know that we were on the call.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    "Not only does he provide me with technical support, but he also helps me manage my stress."

    "I was trying to think of how you would use this information in your presentations."

    "I just wanted to do that to let them know we were ...."

    I don't understand what you mean by "on the call." "On duty" perhaps?

    "On call' can refer to nurses or doctors, or other workers, who must be ready to come to work at the drop of a hat, or when the boss phones and says 'get in here!' )
