Hi,

Could you help me with this?

1) The shop is open from xxx to xxxx. OR The shop is opened from xxx to xxxx??

2) Someone wrote " The shop is open from xxxx up to ...... Is it correct? I would omit the word UP, but is it completely wrong?

3) Someone wrote "I like all the castle". I understand what she meant, but this structure sounds unidiomatic. I would have written something like: I like the whole castle for example. Any suggestion? Is the original version completely wrong or acceptable?

Thank you in advance.

And what about "The shop opens at 9.30 a.m. and closes at 6.00 p.m." Is it correct if I want to say that it begins to work at that time?
AnonymousThe shop opens at 9.30 a.m. and closes at 6.00 p.m.
Correct. (I would write times with a colon, thus: 9:30.)

First let me mention some examples

Open = adjective open ( v ) can be intransitive and transitive

opened = past participle not used as adjective and the most common to use open as adjective

We cannot use intransitive verbs in passive ... The door is open ... The shop is open \ The gate opened

What time does the bank open?
The bookshop opens at 11am.

The shop was opened by the Mayor transitive
