WRONG!

The above is the definition of COMPLIMENT, not complement. The complement of something is another thing that, when combined with the first, makes up some sort of whole.

So complementary colours would make white (all colours), complementary angles add to 90 degrees, a complement of a set (along with the origianl set) would give the universe - in set theory.
