    Also for some meanings and usage, please check out these three pages:
    raise: Definition, Synonyms from Answers.com
    rise: Definition, Synonyms from Answers.com
    http://www.answers.com/topic/arise

    If after reading them you still have doubts please let us know.

    I suggest that you try to make up at least one different sentence with those words and post here for discussion.

    Also note that 'arouse' is a completely different concept.
