Abstract: For an uncountable cardinal and a subset of an abelian group , the following conditions are equivalent:

- (i)
- for all integers ;
- (ii)
- there exists a group homomorphism such that is dense in .

- (iii)
- there exists an isomorphism between and a subgroup of such that is dense in .

We prove that the following conditions are equivalent for an uncountable subset of an abelian group that is either (almost) torsion-free or divisible:

- (a)
- is -dense in for some Hausdorff group topology on ;
- (b)
- is -dense in some precompact Hausdorff group topology on ;
- (c)
- for every integer .
