For a unitary right module $M$, there are two known partitions of simple modules in the category $\sigma[M]$: the first one divides them into $M$-injective modules and $M$-small modules, while the second one divides them into $M$-projective modules and $M$-singular modules. We study inclusions between the first two and the last two classes of simple modules in terms of some associated radicals and proper classes.
