    наблюдать /смотреть - observe/ watch or see

    прочесть / прочитать - according to one dictionary the basic meaning 'read' is the same for both of the words, i.e. in this basic meaning they are synonyms.

    First pair means "to observe/to watch"
    The second I cannot translate but I don't see much of a difference even in Russian
