Compose or Comprise
to combine together to form a whole
SYNONYM make up
Ten men compose the committee.
to be the parts or members that form something
SYNONYM make something up
Older people comprise a large proportion of those living in poverty.
I know about the difference between compose and comprise, but sometimes I feel like they are interchangeable for the same meaning and both words are synonym with make up for the meaning so I could say,
Ten men comprise the committee.
Older people compose a large proportion of those living in poverty.
And whether the verb is comprise or compose, there is no meaning difference or is there a way to find a correct word?
Thank you so much as usual in advance.
