    Are these sentences natural? Aug 9

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Has it cleared out outside?

    2.
    Could you name some names that are a good example in that category?

    3. Perhaps for everyone’s benefit, could you outline your strategy going forward?


    Thanks,
    MG

    1. Has it cleared out outside?Is this referring to the weather? If so, use "cleared up".

    2.

    Isn't this a statement and not a question?

    Thanks.

    It could be either. If spoken it would depend on the tone of voice.
