To metaphorically bring up something (an objection, a point) to give an example of , to cite or mention something. But also - irritatingly - to literally raise one's hand (Oo! Oo! I know ! I know!)

something gets cited or mentioned in a report or article.
|挙||raise / cite/ mention||HAND||手|
Labor requires STRENGTH,

You raise your HANDS in class, to SAY answers that bring you honor.
