    It ionizes atoms.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    There are three types of nuclear radiation:

    α rays β rays γ rays

    All of these have enough energy that they can remove an electron from an atom and cause it to become charged or ionized.

    A is wrong. Ionizing radiation does not have enough energy to split atoms.

    B is wrong. Nuclear radiation does not involve burning - the reaction of atoms with oxygen.
