2.We have 35 students in our class.
3. Our class has 35 students.
Hi, Apple—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).
