    Are these sentences natural? Jan 24


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. How does this variable change as (the) time passes? ( Is ‘the’ required?)

    2. Let John know that I had come by and will come by again.

    3. My question is how they adjust for the elapsed time since the warning was issued.

    Thanks,
    MG.
