Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
Gaskets on most reach-in coolers noted in poor repair.
Kevin was relocated, into an immature host this time. The troublesome host was in poor repair, and it was decided there wasn’t much point in saving him.
The railroad, built by the Japanese forces that occupied Korea during World War II, is reported to be in poor repair, with aged rolling stock running no faster than 40 mph or 65 km/h
“in poor repair” is opposite of “in good repair” i.e. = out of condition, in bad shape
That's how I'd interpret it, exactly.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
