    I'd like to ask if I want to give the meaning of A is composed of b,c and d.

    When is A used as singular, and when is A used as plura? that is ,

    "A consists of b,c and d "or "As consist of b,c and d"?

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm not sure what you're asking, but if it's whether those constructions are correct, yes, I suppose the are. But you'll probably need an article for a singular A... that's why it's easier if you can imagine real-life examples instead of letters.
