【解析】

1.even though和even if的用法区别

1)even if 引导的从句是往往是假设性的,相当于汉语的“即使”“纵然”“就算”“哪怕”

They’ll stand by you even if you don’t succeed.
即使你不成功,他们也会支持你。

【注意】
正因为even if从句的内容通常是假设性的,所以有时还可用于虚拟语气;这样用的even if 与单独使用的if比较接近

Even if he had the money, he wouldn’t buy it.
他即使有钱也不会买它。

2)even though 引导的从句内容往往是真实的,主要用于引出不利用于主句情况的信息,相当于汉语的“尽管”“虽然”

He went out even though it was raining.
尽管在下雨,他还是出去了。

3)不过,在实际语言运用中,even if与even though有时也可不加区别地混用

Even if [Even though] she laughs at him, he likes her.
尽管她嘲笑他,他还是很喜欢她。

2.precise

1)adj.精确的;恰好的;准确的;严格的

With the new technique, measurement was claimed to be much more precise.
有了这种技术,人们断言测量的结果会精确得多。

2)precise, accurate, exact辨析

这三个词都有“准确,精确”的意思。

accurate强调“准确性”,即“与事实无出入”;

exact指数量上或质量上高度准确,强调各细节均与事实或标准完全符合,“丝毫不差”;

precise是正式用词,含意是“明确,精密”,强调定义或界限的鲜明和准确,含有刻板的意味。

3.literary

adj. 文学的;书面的;从事文学研究的

He is endowed with literary talent.
他有文学天分。

4.exemplary

adj.可仿效的;模范的

And this exemplary treatment of herself by herself constitutes her presence.
