Suppose a person wears a hooded jacket. He pulls the hood over his head. Because the hood is so big, it partially covers his eyes. Also, he is currently inside a closed room with no windows.
"He could barely see."
"He could barely see out."
"He could barely see outside."
Are these the correct way to describe the situation? Are 'out' and 'outside' used correctly?
If his hood is partly covering his eyes, it doesn't really matter whether he's in a locked room with no windows or not. He can still not see much because of the hood.
He can't see much.
He can't see out from under the hood very well.
He can't see outside because there are no windows.
