Abstract: In this paper we determine (1) the class of all nondiscrete $ \operatorname{LCA} $ groups for which every proper closed subgroup is the kernel of a continuous character of the group, (2) the class of locally compact groups whose closed subgroups are totally ordered by inclusion, and (3) the class of infinite $ \operatorname{LCA} $ groups whose proper closed subgroups are topologically isomorphic. Since all these determinations involve only the most common $ \operatorname{LCA} $ groups, we may regard our findings as characterizations of natural classes of these well-known groups.
