Our HW for issue 545.
A grapheme is atomic by definition as it represents the minimum unit (i.e., a unit that cannot be further decomposed) of a writing system.
Furthermore, the grapheme is a conceptual and non-concrete unit and is made manifest by the individual act (performance) of writing. For this reason, a grapheme of an actual text cannot exist. Instead, in actual texts we find glyphs that are precisely the physical manifestation of graphemes.
We hope this clarifies :-)
