    Are these sentences natural? Feb 3


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. My interpretation of how likely such an event is as follows :…

    2. The only time I have been there was when I did a cruise there a couple of years ago.

    3. She doesn’t think that there will be any more such incidences.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    1. My interpretation of how likely such an event is as follows. "Likely" (that is, didn't happen) and "is" are not compatible) I would prefer ".......of how likely such an event would be, is as follows".
    2. The only time I have been there was when I did (would use "took") a cruise there a couple of years ago.

    3. She doesn’t think that there will be any more such incidences incidents.

    Thanks,
