    Are these sentences natural? December 12


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. It is a big project they are keeping secret.

    2. Winters here are not as bad as what you have there.

    3. I would be very surprised if didn't make the final round of the competition.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    You're missing a word in the third sentence. Between "if" and "didn't."
