We analyze a property of mass matrix at positive extrema in type II string theory. In IIA, off-diagonal components are not suppressed, therefore tachyonic directions are likely met in the presence of many moduli. While in a IIB model, such the suppression is achieved due to a hierarchy by non-perturbative effect and an alpha' correction. Many moduli may help to realize small cosmological constant in the model.
