    I'm sold on your explanation.
    Me thinks, and credit goes to jwschang on this, it's

    "I am sold (X by you) on (the basis of) your explanation." (passive)

    Compare:

    "You sold me X on the basis of your explanation." (active)

    Cas

    adjective adjective adjective
    I can't seem to stop myself from writing the word 'adjective'
