Irradiation often results in cancer because it damages the chromosomes and causes double-stranded breaks. Assuming a chromosome is broken into fragments, what is the consequence for the cell?

The cell can have too many or too few chromosomes after mitosis.

The cell will have the correct number of chromosomes, but they cannot be replicated.

The cell will be unable to sort chromosomes because the mitotic spindles are destroyed, so chromosomes will be sorted into only one of the cells during cytokinesis.

The cell will duplicate its chromosomes but cannot divide, so it will be tetraploid.
