    Are these sentences natural? October 13


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. You can answer them by email or we can go through the questions over (the) phone.

    2. You can answer the questions by email or by phone.

    3. It is just a matter of saving some time.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    Yes, they are OK. In #1, "the" is necessary.
