    The government plans to reduce spending "by" one million dollars.

    政府計劃削減開銷一百萬美元.

    凡是增減的「幅度、差額」, 都是用"by....."來表示.

    My salary has been increased by 20% from this month.

    從這個月起我加薪了20%.

    The labeled price has dropped by $20 from $100 to $80.

    標價已從100元跌到80元, 跌了20元

    你好~~

    我來幫你做解釋!!

    因為如果用「of」的話那就會變成↓

    政府計劃,減少開支“的“ 100萬美元。

    可是如果用「by」的話就會變成↓

    政府計劃,減少開支“改為” 100萬美元

    雖然我也不太確定~但你還是參考看看吧!!
