"对比" (duìbǐ) and "对照" (duìzhào):

对比 (Duìbǐ) means to "compare" or "contrast" two or more things in order to identify similarities and differences between them. This verb is commonly used in contexts where a comparison or contrast is made between different objects, ideas, situations, or phenomena. It often involves highlighting similarities and differences to gain insight or understanding.

对照 (Duìzhào) also means to "compare," but it specifically emphasizes the act of comparing or matching one thing against another as a reference or standard.

It can also involve comparing a situation or condition against an ideal or desired state.
