Hi, yes you have used ‘given that’ correctly here. I’d drop the ‘somewhat’, it sounds unusual in the sentence, and isn’t really needed. If you want to modify ‘reasonable’ you could say ‘reasonable enough’, or use another word like ‘acceptable’ to signify ok but not great, instead.

The use of "somewhat" in a question of this nature sounds a bit like you're making fun of them, but otherwise yes, it is grammatically correct.

I think we can complete without this "Given"

It is difficult to say without context. What is structure referring to?
