Ono's number pD and the class number hD, associated to an imaginary quadratic field with discriminant -D, are closely connected. For example, Frobenius-Rabinowitsch Theorem asserts that pD = 1 if and only if hD = 1. In 1986, T. Ono raised a problem whether the inequality hD ≤ 2pD holds. However, in our previous paper , we saw that there are infinitely many D such that the inequality does not hold. In this paper we give a modification to the inequality hD ≤ 2pD. We also discuss lower and upper bounds for Ono's number pD.
