Guo introduced an adaptive Bonferroni procedure and he proved that his adaptive Bonferroni procedure controls the familywise error rate under a conditional dependence model. However, how to choose the tuning parameter λ to control the familywise error rate in the procedure under positive dependence is not clear in his paper. In this paper, we suggest that λ = α . Simulation studies are provided.
