By diffuse neutron scattering the D short-range order in a Pd0.975Ag0.025D0.685 crystal was investigated at 50 and 70K. The results are compared with the D ordering in the PdDx system previously investigated, and it is shown that the isointensity contours around the (1/2,1,0) point are similar to that observed in PdD0.71. One may conclude that the characteristic changes in the short-range-order intensity which occur near x=0.7 in PdDx with concentration are due to changes of the electronic structure.
