Cluster head selection is a highly researched topic, and the paper does not clearly bring out the novelty of this work.... in its current form, it appears uninteresting.

Paper summary
-------------
In this paper, authors proposed a Supportive Multi-hop Single Relay Selection (MSRS) scheme to enhance Cluster Head (CH) to Base Station (BS) communication.

Comments for author
-------------------
Many terms and techniques are mentioned in the work but they are not aligned. For instance, the work has not emphasized on multi-hop communication, rather it seems just a two-hop communication with relay selection. Even, the system model assumptions need proper justification in practical scenarios. Many terms have not been defined at all in the paper e.g., see h_i after eq. (1). The channel model for LOS communication could be different and not just Rayleigh fading.
