This paper is an extension of the work developed in [4] on quasibases of abelian pp-groups and based on the doctoral dissertation ofAndrija Vodopivec [5].We introduce the ideas of a δ\delta-combination and height of an inductive quasibasis and show that the height of a quasibasis is invariant for related inductive quasibases. Moreover, an abelian pp-group is separable if and only if the heights of all δ\delta-combinations are zero. Finally, we show that an abelian pp-group is not reduced if and only if there exists a δ\delta-combination with infinite height.
