What is the difference between comprise, contain and consist?
Does English has other likely synonims?

1 comprise is formal than others , (means has a value)
2 consist is only used the active form (means no auxiliary needed ) example (my house consists of two room=true
my house is consists of two rooms=false
Hayley1267Comprise = made out of (many different meanings)
Contain = has it in it
Consist = more like the pieces of a plan or idea or job
I am learning Russian (and doing poorly with it!!!) feel free to contact me anytime!
