I'm doing a survey on sentences like ''It is (past) time for him to update his resume,'' the intended meaning of which is something like ''He has to update his resume now.'' I would very much appreciate it if you as a native English speaker could kindly take a few minutes to look at 12 sentences and answer questions, and optionally provide comments on their usage, meaning, formality, frequency, etc. Please feel free to distribute this survey to any native English speakers that you think would be interested in it.

Here is the link to the survey:
