 Three definitions for proper understanding of Using the Noun phrases in sentences. 

Complement : It is such type of words in a sentence that fulfill the meaning of other related words in the particular sentences.

For example:

Appositives: This is different from the complement This usually tells of a new qualities, characteristics and features of a particular noun in a sentences.

For example:

My brother, a teacher, is a good man in the country.

Here the “A TEACHER” is the appositives of the subject “MY BROTHER” because the “A TEACHER” is telling some additional features of the subject without making an direct relation with the subject. And grammatically there is no direct relation of the appositive with the other part of the sentences because the appositives (A TEACHER) can be removed from the sentences  without making any grammatical mistakes.

Prepositional Phrase as adverbials: The construction is Preposition + Noun phrase for example, in the office, at the meeting, from your computer etc
