We introduce the concepts of lifting modules and (quasi-)discrete modules relative to a given left module. We also introduce the notion of SSRS-modules. It is shown that (1) if M is an amply supplemented module and 0NNN0 an exact sequence, then M is N-lifting if and only if it is N-lifting and N-lifting; (2) if M is a Noetherian module, then M is lifting if and only if M is R-lifting if and only if M is an amply supplemented SSRS-module; and (3) let M be an amply supplemented SSRS-module such that Rad(M) is finitely generated, then M=KK, where K is a radical module and K is a lifting module.
