Hatcher 2.1.14

Hatcher, Algebraic Topology, Chapter 2, Section 1

14. Determine whether there exists a short exact sequence 0\to\mathbb{Z}_4\to\mathbb{Z}_8\oplus\mathbb{Z}_2\to\mathbb{Z}_4\to 0. More generally, determine which abelian groups A fit into the short exact sequence 0\to\mathbb{Z}_{p^m}\to A\to\mathbb{Z}_{p^n}\to 0 with p prime. What about the case of short exact sequences 0\to\mathbb{Z}\to A\to\mathbb{Z}_n\to 0?
