Abstract: This paper addresses questions related to results of M. Arapovic concerning imbeddability of a commutative unitary ring $ R$ in a zero-dimensional ring. The case where $ R$ is a product of zero-dimensional rings is of special interest. We show (1) if the zero ideal of $ R$ admits a unique representation as an irredundant intersection of (strongly primary) ideals, then $ R$ need not be imbeddable in a zero-dimensional ring, and (2) for a family $ \left\{ {{R_\alpha }} \right\}$ of zero-dimensional rings, $ R = \prod {R_\alpha }$ is imbeddable in a zero-dimensional ring if and only if $ R$ itself is zero-dimensional.
