This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of a group property (i.e., group having subgroups of all orders dividing the group order) not satisfying a group metaproperty (i.e., quotient-closed group property).

Statement

It is possible to have a finite group G and a normal subgroup H such that:

  • G satisfies the property that it has subgroups of every order dividing the order of G.
  • The quotient group G/H does not have this property, i.e., there exists a positive divisor of the order of G/H such that G/H has no subgroup of that order.

Proof

We can take G to be the direct product of A4 and Z2 and H to be the direct factor subgroup cyclic group:Z2.
