Q: these pledges are impractical. does this sound natural?
A: @bonnie9124: The only thing I'd make sure of, is to elaborate a little more. So that the reader understands the situation without being in it. The sentence you used could refer to any situation. If you said something like "The pledges they expect us to (conform to/make) are so impractical". It just gives more situational awareness. Another thing is that pledge is not a very common word that's used. At least not in my experience, it is almost exclusively used in gatherings with groups when you willingly agree to do something. Therefore I'd used another word if you were just trying to say "The things they (ask of us/ask us to do) are impractical". Hope that helps!
