The fusion reaction is:
D. Curium-246 combining with carbon-12 to form nobelium-254 and four neutrons.

A fusion reaction is a type of nuclear reaction where two smaller nuclei come together with high energy to form a larger nucleus and possibly create other subatomic particles. Fusion reactions emit tremendous amounts of energy. A classical example of a fusion reaction is the combination of hydrogen to form helium, which occurs in the sun and provides it with its energy.
