Comprise is more formal than consist:
The USA comprises 50 states.
We can also use it in the passive voice in the form ‘be comprised of’:
The course is comprised of ten lectures and five seminars on the theory of economics and banking.
Comprise, but not compose, can be used with the parts that make up something as the subject:
Oil and coal comprise 70% of the nation’s exports.
Can I say the first example in different ways, similarly to the second example as:
The USA is comprised of 50 states.
As passive voice version to the original example:
The USA is comprised with/by 50 states.
Similarly to the third example:
50 states comprise the USA.
Similarly can I write for the second and the third examples?
