Using the well know relation between Ricci scalar, , and torsion scalar, , that is, , we show that, for any spherically symmetric spacetime whose (i) scalar torsion vanishing, that is, or (ii) total derivative term, that is, with is the contraction of the torsion, vanishing, or (iii) the combination of scalar torsion and total derivative term vanishing, could be solution for and gravitational theories.
