    It was obvious/apparent/clear that...

    It was obvious/apparent/clear that the child had been badly treated.
    It was obvious/apparent/clear from her face/ from what she said that she was upset.
    It was obvious/apparent/clear that I knew very little about it.

    Are all three adjectives fine in these three sentences? I would think they are, but I'm not sure.
