black and white
a very clear choice that causes no confusion When you're flying a plane, it's black and white - you can't be wrong, you've got to be right.
Etymology: based on the clear difference between the colors
Source: Thefreedictionary.com

You might hear reference to 'shades of grey' is the situation is confused or unclear.

Both expressions stem from distinctions between the colours.
