A finite group is called splitting or splittable if it is a union of some collections of its proper subgroups intersecting pairwise at the identity. A special kind of splitting is known to be normal splitting. Also, a group is said to have the basis property if, for each subgroup , has a basis (minimal generating set), and any two bases have the same cardinality. In this work, I discuss a relation between classes of finite groups that possess both normal splitting and the basis property. This paper shows mainly that any non- -group with basis property is normal splitting. However, the converse is not true in general. A counterexample is given. It is well known that any -group has basis property. I demonstrate some types of -groups which are splitting as well.
