Answers to Kirk-Shahzad's Questions on Strong $b$-metric Spaces
In this paper, two open questions on strong $b$-metric spaces posed by Kirk and Shahzad [11, Chapter 12] are investigated. A counterexample is constructed to give a negative answer to the first question, and a theorem on the completion of a strong $b$-metric space is proved to give a positive answer to the second question.
