Abstract: Pierce [3] has shown that over a commutative regular ring every finitely generated submodule of an n-generated module is n-generated, and then has asked if this result holds for noncommutative regular rings. Here the result is shown for regular modules over any associative ring, which answers Pierce's question since a ring is regular if and only if every module is regular.
