    Moderato con anima (English Only)
    English (Singapore/UK), basic Chinese
    We are thinking of this meaning of reduce from Oxford Dictionaries:
    3 (reduce something to) Change a substance to (a different or more basic form):
    it is difficult to understand how lava could have been reduced to dust

    3.1 Present a problem or subject in (a simplified form):
    he reduces unimaginable statistics to manageable proportions

    3.2 Convert a fraction to (the form with the lowest terms).
    The idea is to summarise a complex discussion to some sentences in English.
