    1. Let g be an element of G(p). Then |g| = p^k for some nonnegative integer k. Now |alpha(g)| must divide |g| = p^k, so we have |alpha(g)| = p^j for some nonnegative integer j <= k. Therefore, alpha(g) must be an element of H(p), so alpha[G(p)] must be a subset of H(p).

    2. First we show that if G and H are isomorphic finite abelian groups and p ...
