    Are these sentences natural? Jan 26


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Did you talk to (the) Dell guys ? ( I meant did the person call the Dell computers support centre. )

    2. Where do you stand on your quarterly report?

    3. Who is your favorite team?

    Thanks,
    MG.

    2. Where do you stand on your quarterly report? I would prefer "with".

    3. Who is your favorite team? Or "which".

    Thanks,

    Thanks folks

    2. Where do you stand on your quarterly report? I would prefer "with".
    Here I was asking a collegue (who was supposed to finish a quarterly report) about the status of the report. Do you still prefer ' with' over 'on'?
