# Group in which any two normal subgroups are comparable

## Definition

A group is said to be a **group in which any two normal subgroups are comparable** if any two normal subgroups of the group can be compared, or in other words, if its lattice of normal subgroups is a totally ordered set. In other words, given any two normal subgroups of the group, one of them must lie completely inside the other.

This article defines a group property: a property that can be evaluated to true/false for any given group, invariant under isomorphism
