    Go to Google.

    Type in "idiom" followed by the expression.

    (Note: the correct idiom for #3 is "hair's breadth.")

    Please remember to give your threads more relevant titles. The title "mr" means nothing and is not connected to your question at all.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
