It has been shown that for a linking pairing (G, φ)on a finite abelian group G there is a closed, connected, oriented 3-manifold, M, with first homology group H1M=G having linking form . A refinement of this result, where the manifold M is a Seifert manifold which is a rational homology sphere, was conjectured and proved in the case where the abelian group G has no 2-torsion. In this paper we deal with the case when the group G is actually a 2-group.
