Anytime I encounter this verb, "comprise", it makes me wonder why there are transitive ( mostly ) and intransitive ( often with the preposition, of ).
Especially considering the definition of 5 a of the transitive and the definition of the intransitive. ( As is shown below )
Is there any instance when we should particularly use the intransitive ( and vise versa ).
Or to say in another words, is there any definite distinction between them?
