I have seen some people who place the preposition "of" after writing the word "comprise". Is it ungrammatical?

My second question is that often we receive an error "fragment" while typing some text in the MS Word. I want to know what does fragment error mean?

A sentence fragment is an incomplete sentence [While riding my bicycle.] I didn't know that systems could identify them, so it may not be the same thing here.

My American Heritage Dictionary: The traditional rule states that the whole comprises the parts; the parts compose the whole. In strict usage: The Unnion commprises 50 states; fifty states compose the Union. While this distinction is still maintained by many writers, comprise is increasingly uses, especially in the passive: The Union is comprised of 50 states.

Hi,

If you want to use the structure with the preposition 'of', the usual form is The book is comprised of ten chapters.

Hi, Clive. I meant for there to be a 'd' on the last of my comments. I've edited.
