GAP — GeneratorsOfRing giving a list with repeated element

by Paweł Piwek   Last Updated August 14, 2019 15:20 PM

I put the following code in GAP:

$\texttt{R := Integers mod 8;}$

$\texttt{GeneratorsOfRing(R);}$

and I get the answer:

$\texttt{[ ZmodnZObj( 1, 8 ), ZmodnZObj( 1, 8 ) ]}$.

Can someone explain why the generator is repeated there?
