Ø  对比Contrast
Contrast points out differences, the two are structurally similar and can be discussed together. The purpose of contrasting is to understand either of the two things more clearly and, at times, to make judgments about them.

Ø  表示对比关系过渡词小结:on the contrary, despite, yet, nevertheless, unlike, in contrast, conversely, however, difference, different from, differ in that, in spite of, although, but, while, whereas, instead, instead of, rather than, notwithstanding,

Ø  表示类比对比关系段落展开Contrast paragraphs

Sample 1
 
Although there are a number of similarities, there are several differences between fast and home cooked meals. The first difference is that fast food is generally more fattening since oil is frequently used in the cooking process. In contrast, the fat content can be controlled in home cooking. Another important difference is the amount of time that each takes. Fast food is obviously quick since menus are limited and a number of staff are involved in the preparation and cooking process. However, home cooked meals take longer to complete since one person is usually responsible for the entire meal. The third difference is convenience. Fast food is ready-made and always available whereas home cooked meals are not instant.
 
Sample 2

Contrast

Even though Arizona and Rhode Island are both states of the U.S., they are strikingly different in many ways. To begin with, the physical size of each state is different. Arizona is large, having an area of 114,000 square miles, whereas Rhode Island is only about a tenth the size, having an area of only 1,214 square miles. Another difference is in the size of the population of each state. Arizona has about four million people living in it, but Rhode Island has less than one million. The two states also differ in the kinds of natural environments that each has. For example, Arizona is a very dry state, consisting of large desert areas that do not receive much rainfall every year. However, Rhode Island is located in a temperate zone and receives an average of 44 inches of rain per year. In addition, while Arizona is a landlocked state and thus has no seashore, Rhode Island lies on the Atlantic Ocean and does have a significant coastline.
