The exact meaning of this sense of demonstrate
can depend upon its context. For example:
- "I will demonstrate how to throw a Frisbee." — show how to do something
- "I will demonstrate how much quicker the new computer is than the old one." — show how something works
- "Her questioned demonstrated that she was listening and thinking deeply about what was said." — showed to be true or proved
- The truth of this assertion might be demonstrated by innumerable passages from almost all the poetical writings, even of Milton himself.
