不合适的表达：ascend/ descend/ raise。前面两个都是坡度的升降，最后一个是提升，而不是数据的上升。
表示下降的时候，reduce 其实也不常见，如果一定要使用，请用被动的形式，并且句子本身要有裁减缩减的意思，比如：The number of employees was reduced from 40 to 25.
常见介词搭配，有些不规律，比如：figure for/ data for.
描述数据变化的时候，不是每次都要 to，比如 reach 就直接加上数据即可。
很多描述变化的动词，本身就自带程度，比如 surge 激增，plunge 骤降，所以，可以不搭配副词修饰，或者搭配相应程度的副词表示强调和突出。但是，不能搭配反义程度的副词，比如 plunge slightly，会显得不伦不类。
很多表示变化的词汇，动词名词同形，比如 increase/ rise/ fall等，有些则需要变化 grow → growth，有些 soar 只有动词，有些 upsurge 只有名词。使用地时候需要辨析清楚。
所有的类别都无需掌握全部替换，毕竟考试实用主义来讲，每个类别知道 3 个左右足矣。即便出现了第 4 次的同样表达，我们适当重复，无伤大雅。
