Locally solvable group
A group in which every finitely-generated subgroup is solvable (see Finitely-generated group; Solvable group). The class of locally solvable groups is closed with respect to taking subgroups and homomorphic images, but it is not closed under extension.
A locally solvable torsion group is locally finite.
