    Are these sentences natural? Feb 24

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. How much were we off by in that account?

    2. I was just curious where that was from . ( asking about the salad my colleague was having)


    3. What was The Cobras used to be called before? ( asking about a sports team)


    Thanks,
    MG.

    or, "What were The Cobras called before?"
