- 1. 選出
They all did wrong: why single him out for punishment? 他們都犯錯誤了: 為什麼單單懲罰他？
Which would you single out as the best? 你覺得哪一個最好?
如果你用pick out就意思相同 可是阿換成pick up意思就不一樣了啦,是"接送","拾起"的意思~ pick up雖然也有挑選的意思,可是只限挑選異姓(也就是釣凱子之類的) 所以基本上跟single out不太一樣啦!!
pick up應該是撿到的意思吧？或者是順道載送某人，如：Could you pick me up?我想。。。如果要用pick，你應該是指pick out吧？pick out才有挑選的意思，如：Let me pick out something good for you.
