I'm learning for Ielts test, and in the book "Cambridge Ielts 1" which I'm using has this question "How does it close"? (I will extract relating conversation below). When I google it, it seems like not many people have used it in daily life, does it? And what does this question mean besides? And what does the police mean when he say "Never mind" in this conversation? Does he want to solace the girl? Thank you!
(police) Tell me what it looks like? (girl) It's a soft leather one, you know, not a heavy box-type like a man's - How does it close? - It's got buckles at the front...two of them. They're gold-plated ones - Fine...was it clocked? - No, I'm afraid not - Never mind
