Hello!

I'm confused with the use of: "by contrast with- in contrast (to)".

Would it be possible to give a simple example in BrE indicating their use/usage? Is either of them more common?

In contrast to her sister, Ann is a very patient child.


Is this sentence right?

It's correct but it's rather formal. I'd say "Unlike her sister, Ann's a very patient child".
