    Confusing words: Close-Shut.

    How can I distinguish the words "close" and "shut" as for me to know the usage of them in any given sentence?

    I did the test on these words getting 7 right answers, problem is that I can`t really know why the rest of them are incorrect.

    I want to thank you in advance for your kidness.
    God bless.

    Re: Confusing words: Close-Shut.

    Without seeing the ones you got wrong, it is difficult to say that there is any real difference between them

    Shut/Close the door./window.

    The shop was shut/closed.

    Shut/Close your eyes and go to sleep.
