Various characterizations of the Beta Weibull Geometric distribution of Bidram et al. (2011), the New Generalized Exponential distribution of Bidram et al. (2012), and the Gamma Exponentiated Weibull distribution of Pinho et al. (2012) are presented. These characterizations are based on: (i) a simple relationship between two truncated moments (ii) certain functions of the nth order statistic, and (iii) certain functions of the 1st order statistics.
