### Abstract

Assume P is a family of primes, and let ()_{P} represent the P-localization functor. If 1 → N →^{L} G, → ^{∈} Q → 1 is an exact sequence of groups with N finite, we prove that the sequence N_{P}^{LP} G_{P} →^{∈P} Q_{P}→ 1 is exact. Moreover, we provide an explicit description of Ker_{iP} when Q belongs to a specific class of groups defined by a cohomological property. This class contains all nilpotent groups, all free groups and all P-local groups, as well as certain extensions formed from these three types of groups. In conclusion, we discuss the implications of our results for the study of finite-by-nilpotent groups.
