Dear all,THE extent of the fading of glitz and glam of Dubai, part of the United Arab Emirates, may become more apparent—so to will the damage its ills might wreak on financial markets around the world. ——The Economist
My question is why not a part in the quoted one. In my opinion, if I say A is a part of B, this suggests B consists of a number of components, A is a part of B. Because Dubai is one country and the United Arab Emirates consists of several countries, so Dubai should be a part of the United Arab Emirates.
Am I right? Thank you.
