    Hi All!

    The sentence "It is obvious that she killed him yesterday" is fine. I'm not sure what you need to know about the structure. Do you not understand what "It is obvious that ..." means? Have you looked up "obvious" in the dictionary?

    It's not possible to answer "What does " It is + adj + that ..." mean?" because the meaning will entirely depend on the adjective chosen.

    Please note my amendments to your post. You don't need to put a space after the quotation marks at the beginning of a quote. You used a couple of inappropriate capital letters ("all" and "someone").

    Re: Hi All

    Thanks for your correction.
    What I mean is that with the kind of sentence "It is......that......", I wonder if there are any specific notes for the clause used after "that ".
    Such as "It is important that I should learn English ", ect...
    Don't hesitate to show me what you know associated with my question.

    As bhaisahab said, "It's not possible to answer "What does " It is + adj + that ..." mean?" because the meaning will entirely depend on the adjective chosen".

    I think that was me though, as ever, I'm happy to be confused with such a respected member of the forum!

    I'm waiting for the results of my session with the optician.
