Synonyms of "Shut" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Shut down and Turn off ?
A: "Turn off" means to stop the functioning of some mechanical/electric device (like lights, computers, cars) where as "shut down" means "completely stop the function/operation of".

"shut down" can apply to more than just mechanical devices (e.g. "the government shut down this restaurant") and "shut down" is usually reserved for larger, complex machines.

You can say "turn off" for any machine/electrical device, but "shut down" usually means a rather complex device. (e.g. "Shut down the lights" doesn't make sense, because lights don't do complex operations. "Shut down the computer" makes sense because a computer is complex)

In short "turn off" emphasizes stopping the flow of electricity in some device, whereas "shut down" means stopping some continual, complex operation.
Q: What is the difference between Shut and Close ?

for example if someone is trying to concentrate on something they are working on but they keep talking then you would tell them "shut your mouth I'm trying to concentrate here"

You could also say shut your trap but that's more of an rude way samething with shut up

However, close your mouth is when someone is chewing their food with their mouth open( you know kinda like a cow I hope you understand what I mean) or are shocked by something and they have their mouth open

Ex:
