    the shades be pulled...

    Hi there,
    When she sat down, she asked that the shades be pulled down because of the bright sunlight.
    Do you know what they mean by shades and pull down?
    thank you

    Do you know what they mean by shades (= blinds, window coverings) and pulled down (= closed by pulling them down across the window, thus decreasing (or preventing) the sunlight (from) coming in through the windows)
    ?
    thank you
