    A) The initial decay rate is very fast, but the decay rate decreases over time. B) Due to randomness, the last couple of radioactive atoms may take a long time before they become nonradioactive. C) The pattern becomes very predictable. D) Only a few radioactive nuclei are left to decay, so fewer and fewer atoms decay. E) The rate of the decay decreases with each half-life cycle. F) The probability that an atom will decay is reduced with each half-life cycle.
