动词 raise 与 rise 分别对应及物与不及物的形式。不过，我发现前者通常被误用为不及物动词。1 以下例句将说明两个单词各自的正确用法。
- The level of the oceans is rising more rapidly than previously reported.
- Awareness of the importance of frequent hand washing has risen in recent years.
- The sun rises in the east.
- We are considering raising the minimum passing score.
- At each step, the position of the bar was raised by 3 cm.
- If you wish to speak, please raise your hand.
