    Are these sentences natural? April 18

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Last weekend, when I was out for a walk with my dog, we passed a beautifully decorated bar. (should it be passed or passed by?)

    2. In terms of overall popularity ranking, beer falls behind only water and tea.


    3. This is not worth even reading through.


    Thanks,
    MG

    1. Either
    2. "ranking" isn't necessary, otherwise OK. But I would question your source.
    3. "through" isn't necessary, otherwise OK.
