In this paper, we study the Rayleigh-Taylor instability phenomena for two compressible, immiscible, inviscid, ideal polytropic fluids. Such two kind of fluids always evolve together with a free interface due to the uniform gravitation. We construct the steady-state solutions for the denser fluid lying above the light one. With an assumption on the steady-state temperature function, we find some growing solutions to the related linearized problem, which in turn demonstrates the linearized problem is ill-posed in the sense of Hadamard. By such an ill-posedness result, we can finally prove the solutions to the original nonlinear problem does not have the property EE(k). Precisely, the $H^3$ solutions to the original nonlinear problem can not Lipschitz continuously depend on their initial data.
