Is sentence 3 problematic?

1. There are 35 students in our class.
2.We have 35 students in our class.
3. Our class has 35 students.

Hi, Appleā€”No, sentence (3) is not problematic. It is grammatical, perfectly natural, and quite common. You can also say: "Our class has 35 students in it." Here are a few related sentences:

  • The jar has fifty peanuts (in it).
  • The building has twenty-five offices (in it).
  • The album has ten songs (on it).
