ANS: A
Phase-specific agents are toxic only to cells passing through a particular phase of the cell cycle.
Cell-cycle specific anticancer agents may be toxic in either the M phase or the S phase, but the wording of the question eliminates these two choices by speaking of the action of these agents in general.
Cell-cycle specific anticancer agents are toxic to all cells regardless of their mitotic state.
