Abstract: Two open questions stemming from the $ \lambda $-property in Banach spaces are solved. The following are shown to be equivalent in a Banach space $ X$: (a) $ X$ has the $ \lambda $-property; (b) every vector in the closed unit ball of $ X$ is expressible as a convex series of extreme points of the unit ball of $ X$. Also, by exhibiting a class of nonrotund Orlicz spaces for which the $ \lambda $-function is identically 1 on the unit spheres, we answer negatively the question of whether the $ \lambda $-function characterizes rotund Banach spaces.
