    Drop out of school

    A. Kate's daughter has failed lots of exams. If she fails one more exam, Kate will let her drop out of school right away.
    B. Kate's daughter has failed a lot of exams. If she fails one more exam, Kate will let her leave school immediately.

    Do these two sentences have a natural conversational tone?

    Thank you so much

    NOT A NATIVE NOR A TEACHER

    Kate will be totally against her doughter dropping out of school.

    You usually drop out of school if you get low grades or don't get enought credits to graduate form high school.

    Hypothetically speaking, Kate could let her doughter leave school. But it's very unlikely because without a university degree her doughter would nave never gotten ahead in the world.
