(急)請問remain跟maintain的差別?

請問這兩個單字要怎麼分辨?

我知道

remain是不及物動詞(要+介系詞)

maintain是及物動詞

兩個字都有(維持;保持)的意思

如果是要(維持;保持)一件事的狀態,

或是後面是加形容詞的時候該用哪個呢?

不好意思:)考試逼近,請大大們解答

感恩感恩~~

    hello I am so glad to answer for you

    maintain

    1) if you maintain something, you make it continue

    = I've tried to maintain contact with my friends.

    2) if you maintain a machine or a building, you keep them in good condition

    = A big house is very expensive to maintain.

    remain

    1) if you remain in a place, you do not move from that place

    = she remained at home, waiting for his phone call.

    2) something that remains, it continues

    = other dangers still remain

    So as you can see, they are absolutely diffferent, and in my view learning

    English should be in English, and it doesn't work in Chinese

    I think [ maintain ] is an act that is done on purpose

    [ remain ] comes out naturally.

    001說得很對,

    要用中文分別這兩個詞很難,

    就像要用英文解釋維持和保持一樣...XD

    to maintain means to keep something in the same condition

    but not necessarily being used in "human"

    EG. to maintain the quality of the products

    維持產品的品質

    it would be awkward if you use remain here...

    to remain is to keep something or someone in exactly the same conditon or position

    EG. he remains concious

    他保持清醒

    maintain is not suitable for this sentence

    to sum up,

    maintain=維持

    remain=保持

    LOL...

    PS.

    also to remain means to exist!
