    請參考我之前的解答,一個參考過專業書籍的解答。

    快速的解答是:

    consist of不可用被動式

    be composed of sb/sth 或compose sth是較正式的用法,意思與consist of相同

    consist of/comprise/make up/constitute/be composed of/be comprised of/compose這幾個動詞的用法都很相近,都指包含、包括所指的人或事物,或指由~而組成。

    Consist of sb/sth是以上用法中最普遍常用的。而且也是唯一可以後接動詞Ving形式的。

    不可以說is composed by / from~,這種用法是錯的。

    參考參考囉

    表達的中文意思相同,但是英文的使用方法不同。

    be composed of 由….組成 (要用被動態)

    Water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen.

    水由氫與氧組成。

    consist of 由….構成 (不用被動態)

    Water consists of hydrogen and oxygen.

    水由氫與氧組成。

    1. compose of 通常的用法是 be composed of 由....組成,構成,所以有被動的意味

    E.g. Water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen.

    水是由氫和氧組成的。

    2. consist of 前面直接接主詞就可以了,表示由...構成,有主動的意味

    E.g. Water consists of hydrogen and oxygen.

    水由氫和氧組成。
