Abstract: Let the $ n$th-order linear differential equation $ Ly = 0$ have a nontrivial solution with $ n$ zeros (counting multiplicities) on an interval $ [\alpha ,\beta ]$. A condition under which $ Ly = 0$ has a solution with $ n$ simple zeros on $ [\alpha ,\beta ]$ is established.

Also, a new proof is given for a known result concerning an interval of the type $ [\alpha ,\beta )$.
