Hello
I am describing a pie chart and I don't know whether or not when I use [made up] [comprise] [account for] I should use "of" or they are OK without it
For examples
[Actor's salaries account for 30%] or [Actor's salaries account for 30% of the budget]
[Actor's salaries make up 30%] or [Actor's salaries make up 30% of the total]
[Actor's salaries comprises 30%]
or [Actor's salaries comprises 30% of the expense]
or are they all correct?

    If the "% of WHAT" is already known to the person or persons being communicated or can be generally understood in the given context, it(of what) can be avoided.

    I am preparing for the IELTS exam and since the pie chart and the paraphrase of the question is there hence we can conclude that [of what] is optional and not needed right?

    Yes, I think there would be description introducing the pie chart, which would be sufficient to give about to which the % in the questions are referring.
