    ......in......

    I am citing one sentence as follows:

    "......Low anomalies stand in contrast to various types of nonlocal events that characterize Era III....."

    My question is that: it should be read as "stand in" contrast to or stand "in contrast to"

    Please, could someone explain to me for this.

    Many Thanks.

    Re: ......in......

    I mean in this sentence: the phrase "stand in" or "in contrast to".
