    obscure

    Hi! Teachers:
    I am practicing the usage of the word: obscure and I make some sentences .
    I am not sure if I used is right.
    Could you check them for me?
    1.For some obscure reason , the baby still keeps having a fever.
    2.Could you paraphrase the statements? Too many jargons obscure the grasp.
    3Your bangs were too long. They obscured your beautiful eyes.
    4.The views were obscured by the tall trees.
    Are my usages idiomatic and correct?
    I would be appreciated if you check them for me.Thanks a lot!
