Abstract: This paper is concerned with the problem of uniqueness of limit cycles in a predator-prey system with Holling's functional response $ {x^p}/\left( a + {x^p} \right)$, where $ a$ and $ p$ are positive parameters. The problem has not yet been settled only in the case $ 1 < p < 2$. This paper gives a sufficient condition under which the predator-prey system with $ 1 < \\ p < 2$ has exactly one limit cycle by using a result of Zhang and Gao. Finally, the fact that our condition is also necessary is mentioned.
