The strong decays of the states are evaluated in the model with two types of space wave functions. Comparing the model expectations with the experimental data for the , , X(2370), and X(2500), we suggest that the , , and X(2500) can be assigned as the members of the meson nonet, while the assignment for the X(2370) is not favored by its width. The kaon is predicted to have a mass of about 2418 MeV and a width of about 163 or 225 MeV.
