Answers

I’d go for (C): Wastes from nuclear power plants are harmful and difficult to manage. When nuclear reactors ‘safety systems are not properly installed and maintained, a nuclear reactor could emit harmful amounts of radiation into the environment. The leak of radiation end result could be catastrophic especially if a containment field were to suddenly rapture. The main disadvantage of this is the difficulty to manage the nuclear waste and might take years to eliminate its radioactivity.
