Abstract: Let $ B$ be a subgroup of an abelian group $ G$ such that $ G/B$ is isomorphic to a direct sum of copies of an abelian group $ A$. For $ B$ to be a direct summand of $ G$, it is necessary that $ G$ be generated by $ B$ and all homomorphic images of $ A$ in $ G$. However, if the functor $ \operatorname{Hom} (A, - )$ preserves direct sums of copies of $ A$, then this condition is sufficient too if and only if $ M{ \otimes _{E(A)}}A$ is nonzero for all nonzero right $ E(A)$-modules $ M$. Several examples and related results are given.
