Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative von Neumann regular ring. A pseudorank function on $ R$ is characterized by a probability measure on the spectrum of $ R$. We exhibit two commutative von Neumann regular rings $ R$ and $ R'$ with the same spectrum $ S$, and two rank functions $ N$ and $ N'$ on $ R$ and $ R'$, corresponding to the same probability measure on $ S$, and such that the maximal right quotient ring $ {Q_{\max }}(R)$ embeds in the $ N$-completion $ \bar R$ of $ R$ while $ {Q_{\max }}(R')$ does not embed in $ \overline {R'} $.
