Exposure to 10 nCi for 10 minutes is more hazardous for a child than for an adult because


▸ the child's cells are dividing more rapidly than the adult's and are, therefore, more susceptible to the radiation.

▸ the child's smaller body size makes the effective dose larger for the child than for the adult.

▸ the child's immune system is not developed well enough to resist damage.

▸ the child's skin is not as thick as an adult's and cannot block as much radiation.

▸ None of these reasons is correct.
