comprise is a synonym of include

verb [ kuhm-prahyz ]

comprise is another word for include

✅  Both include and comprise can mean to contain parts of a whole (this package includes batteries; the system comprises two beacons and a tracking device).

✅  Include is not exhaustive—it details a part as among those that make up the whole, while comprise tends to imply that all the parts that make up the whole are being explicitly mentioned.

✅  Additionally, neither verb works exactly like compose, which reverses the subject and object. We tend to say that the parts compose the whole while the whole includes or comprises the parts.

⚠️  And though comprise is also a synonym of consist of, try to resist the temptation of adding a superfluous of after comprise (This volume comprises three sections)!
