    Well done! You are correct there, but you need to look at your post and edit a little.

    Rise is an intransitive verb and means to go up, stand up , or get out of bed - it doesn't require an object

    George rises very early in the morning.

    Re: Rise & Raise?

    Hello
    Thanks a lot for correcting my mistakes
    what I wanted in that explanation is to define and show the differences between rise and raise so I didn't care so much to the capitalization
    ,however thanks and I am very grateful to your help

    That may be, but you have to remember that there are other students here who may think that your post was correct. Those students may then pick up the bad habit of not capitalising and punctuating correctly.
