Question:

Suppose the Haftorah is from Amos. Can one read from a klaf that is only Sefer Amos by itself? Or can one only read from a full set of Trei Asour in one scroll?

Answer:

Trei Asar is one sefer that has 12 parts to it, and if it is missing the other 11 Neviim it isn’t complete. The benefit of reading from a klaf is only if it is a whole sefer and not if it is only a part. Therefore, it would be better to read from a whole nach (or even a whole Trei Asar) that is printed then from such a klaf. This scenario presents itself, if one wants to read Sefer Yona from a klaf on Yom Kippur, that it is better to read from a whole nach or at least a whole Trei Asar.

Best Wishes.
