Arhangel’skii introduced five classes of spaces, ${\alpha _i}$-spaces $\left ( {i < 5} \right )$, which are important in the study of products of Fréchet-Urysohn spaces. For each $i < 5$, each ${\alpha _i}$-space is an ${\alpha _{i + 1}}$-space and it follows from the continuum hypothesis that there are countable ${\alpha _{i + 1}}$-spaces which are not ${\alpha _i}$-spaces. A $v$-space ($w$-space) is a Fréchet-Urysohn ${\alpha _1}$-space (${\alpha _2}$-space). We show that there is a model of set theory in which each ${\alpha _2}$-space ($w$-space) is an ${\alpha _1}$-space ($v$-space).
