Hello respected teachers,

My gut said it was wrong.

My intuition said it was wrong.

Are the above sentences natural please?

What would you say in such cases, when you feel something but can't bring a reason for it at the time?

I am looking forward to your answers.

Both sentences are natural. A native speaker might be more likely to say "gut" than "intuition", unless making a formal statement.

Another choice would be "I had a feeling it was wrong."
