    It is known to everyone that I love you.

    Are all of the above sentences acceptable?
    If not, would you please tell me the reason?

    Thanks!

    PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.
    I'm not a teacher. Please feel free to correct me. :)

    Re: That I love you is known to everyone.

    They are grammatical but unnatural.

    We'd say 'Everyone knows that I love you.'

    'Everyone knows the Earth is round.'
