First–order accurate monotone conservative schemes have good convergence and stability properties, and thus play a very important role in designing modern high resolution shock-capturing schemes. Do the monotone difference approximations always give a good numerical solution in sense of monotonicity preservation or suppression of oscillations? This note will investigate this problem from a numerical point of view and show that a (2K+1)-point monotone scheme may give an oscillatory solution even though the approximate solution is total variation diminishing, and satisfies maximum principle as well as discrete entropy inequality.
