a. I think that method won't work in some cases. We need a method that will work in all cases.
b. I don't think that method will work in some cases. We need a method that will work in all cases.


Are both of the above grammatically correct?
Are both natural?

Many thanks.

    Sentence b) is good idiomatic English: it is grammatical and tha's the way we tend to arrange those words. Sentence a) does not reflect that natural preference. It's actually slightly difficult to process.
