Abstract: Let $ {C_w}[a,b]$ denote the space of real continuous functions with norm $ {\left\Vert f \right\Vert _w} = \smallint _a^b\left\vert {f(x)} \right\vert w(x)dx$, where $ w$ is a positive bounded weight. It is known that if a subspace $ {M_n} \subset {C_w}[a,b]$ satisfies a certain $ A$-property, then $ {M_n}$ is a Chebyshev subspace of $ {C_w}[a,b]$ for all $ w$. We prove that the $ A$-property is also necessary for $ {M_n}$ to be Chebyshev in $ {C_w}[a,b]$ for each $ w$.
