  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 10.

  • The adjective phrase today is open and shut.

  • Okay . Let's take a look at the note here.

  • . If something is open and shut, especially a legal case or a dispute, it is easily decided

  • or solved. Okay. Good.

  • Let's take a look at several examples here.

  • There is an overwhelming amount of evidence against him.

  • It is an open and shut case.

  • Yeah.

  • Now this is clearly a legal case.

  • That's the way we say it.

  • Anytime we hear it is an open and shut legal case , you know, You don't even need to go

  • to court very much ( it may be settled out of court )Or even if you go to court it will

  • probably be a very short trial.

  • It is open and shut.

  • The evidence is overwhelming. and someone will probably be found guilty.

  • Let's look at number two here.

  • If another driver hits you from behind.

  • while you are waiting at a light.

  • It is an open and shut case.

  • Yes.

  • That's assuming you got injured or seriously injured.

  • You can't be at fault at all.

  • If you are waiting at a light and another driver speeds up and hits you from behind.

  • It is 100% that person's fault.

  • According to the law that is always the way it is.

  • And it should be that way . You really did nothing you were simply waiting at a light

  • and someone hit you very hard from behind, So that would be an open and shut case. He is clearly

  • at fault. All right.

  • Good here.

  • With this new evidence, it will be an open shut case.

  • This is typically the way we hear it.

  • Take you for your time, Bye-bye.
