    In this paper we study the weak convergence of the generally normalized extremes (extremes under nonlinear monotone normalization) of random number of independent (nonidentically distributed) random variables. When the random sample size is assumed to converge in probability and the interrelation between the basic variables and their random size is not restricted, the limit forms as well as the sufficient conditions of convergence are derived. Moreover, when the random sample size is assumed to converge weakly and independent of the basic variables, the necessary and sufficient conditions for the convergence are derived.
