    to see through a person (thing)/to have a question (matter) out with someone

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    It is not only that. I can see through you, Vera, you know that quite well. And as soon as you try to conceal something from me you're sure to be in trouble. Let's have it out.

    to see through a person (thing)— to understand the real nature of; not to be deceived by

    to have a question (matter) out with someone - to talk about it and insist on an explanation

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
