Some Examples

A possible scenario someone brought to me once was, "What about the situation if all of one's relatives are estranged?"  I replied that subjects and relations are abstract terms, it always has to work.  In other words, even if one's relatives are estranged, or dead, or imaginary, they are still your relatives.  They were so because of a combination.  There is nothing that can change that.

In comparison to parts and wholes, if one disassembles a car into all of its parts, that doesn't mean a whole is not composed of parts. 

In comparison to one and many (mathematics), just because a child's homework assignment is composed of subtraction problems, that doesn't mean they can't be added together.
