    Are sentences correct?

    1. Traffic accidents have claimed many lives.
    "Claimed" fits well in the sentence.
    Is the sentence in bold correct?


    2. Traffic accidents have ________many lives.
    ''Claimed' fits well in the blank.
    Is the sentence in bold fine? (Is 'fine' correctly used here?)

    Thanks in advance.
