记忆方法: 1)首字母AAOAC想成As Oafish As A Boy像孩子一样粗钝无礼<==承认                           (oafish鲁钝无礼impolite, clumsy, or aggressive, especially of a man or boy,如the bodyguards, as usual, were brave but oafish这些保镖照旧勇敢但鲁钝无礼)

              2)承认的意思是违背意愿透露mean to disclose against one's will or inclination.   (disclose透露,常暗示之前是保密的often suggests imparting of something previously kept secret,如candidates must disclose their financial assets竞选人必须透露金融资产)
