      Characterization of sign patterns that allow diagonalizability has been a long-standing open problem. In this paper, we obtain some sufficient and/or necessary conditions for a sign pattern to allow diagonalizability. Moreover, we determine how many entries need to be changed to obtain a matrix $B'\in Q(A)$ with rank ${\rm MR}(A)$ from a matrix $B \in Q(A)$ with rank ${\rm mr}(A)$. Finally, we also obtain some results on a sign pattern matrix in Frobenius normal form that allows diagonalizability.
