Abstract: In 2006, C. L. Jiang and Z. Y. Wang posed an open problem: If $ T$ is a strongly irreducible operator, is $ {\mathcal{A}}'(T)/{\rm rad} {\mathcal A}'(T)$ commutative? They conjectured that the answer is positive. In this paper, to negatively answer their problem, a counterexample is given.
