  1. 1 and 2 don't mean quite the same thing. "Look through" means just paging through and looking at pictures or scanning a few pages. "Read through" means exactly that.

    An opposite would be not reading it ... or even looking through it!

    3 and 4 have the same issues -- "read" means just that; "look through" or "look at" means scanning or paging through, but not reading.
