### A note on the extent of two subclasses of star countable spaces

We prove that every Tychonoff strongly monotonically monolithic star countable space is Lindelöf, which solves a question posed by O.T. Alas et al. We also use this result to generalize a metrization theorem for strongly monotonically monolithic spaces. At the end of this paper, we study the extent of star countable spaces with k-in-countable bases, k ∈ ℤ.
