ABSTRACT
The objections are not justified. It should have been noted that ion charge number zi=1 throughout the referred paper [Ghosh et al., Phys. Plasmas 7, 3594 (2000)]. There is no inconsistency in the formulation of the referred paper as explained in the text.

    Ion acoustic shock waves (IASWs) are studied in a plasma consisting of nonextensive electrons and ions. The dissipation is taken into account the kinematic viscosity among the plasma constituents. The Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers (KdV-Burgers) equation is derived by reductive perturbation method....

    Effects of nonadiabaticity of variable dust charge, dust fluid temperature, trapped electrons as well as nonisothermality of ions on the amplitude modulation of dust acoustic waves in an unmagnetized dusty plasma are investigated. A modified nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) is obtained...
