They look okay. What Legandivori is saying is that by having the alto note as a G rather than a Bb (in the last example) you avoid doubling the third of the chord, which is not such good practice unless you have a specific reason for doing so. Basically, if the Soprano, Alto and Tenor parts are as close together as they can be, then it is a close position chord. Anything else would be open position.
