I would like to know whether "consist of" refers to an exhaustive composition or not?

For example,

  • Their apartment consists of two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Does this sentence mean the apartment consist of these rooms only, or the apartment might include other components?

Thanks, Leon

  • Yes, it does - otherwise it would be 'includes two bedrooms'. Jan 24 '21 at 10:54

It’s exhaustive.

We're only talking about rooms here so other components don't matter in the description. So yes, that apartment only consists of two bedrooms and a bathroom.
