What would be the consequence of a cell being unable to replicate its DNA?

a) The cell would not be able to undergo cell division as it normally would

b) The cell would be unable to make proteins based on the information in DNA

c) The cell would not form a nucleus, because the nucleus contains DNA

d) The cell would become a cancer cell, dividing in an uncontrolled manner.

I am stuck between option A and B since both of the options are plausible.
