So 93confirmed you would sacrifice a bishop to kill an opponets knight?
Closed position just means that most of the pawns are still on the board and the center of the board is cluttered. In this position, the bishops don't have much room to manuever while the Knights can move around more freely.
End game basically means the end of a game where most pieces are off the board and conclusion is in sight. For example, two pawns and a King against three pawns and a King.
Yes, I would capture an opponent's Knight if need be but it depends on the position. You shouldn't take it just because it's your turn to move.
