    Consisting In / Consisting Of

    Good afternoon:

    After some searching for the correct meaning and difference between Consisting In and Consisting Of, I have conducted a practical approach to them in Internet, which indeed has confused me more than helped me.

    I would like someone to offer a definition or explanation from a native point of view.

    Thank you
