    Let G be a group of order 2p. by Lagrange’s Theorem subgroups of G can only have order 1, 2, p, or 2p The subgroup of order 1 is the trivial group {e}. which is normal The subgroup of order 2p is G itself, which is normal since any product of elements of G belongs to G. if H is a subgroup of order p then index of H in G is 2 .which is normal bcz For a subgroup H of a group of index 2 is normal. therefore order of H is 2 which is not normal
