Dear teachers,

Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

“But why do you suppose this one took six hours, and this one three months? – you probably felt like painting when you did the quick one, and were getting fed up when you did the other.”
“You have hit it on the nose.”

hit it on the nose = hit the mark = hit the bull’s eye

Thanks for your efforts.

Regards,

V
