When nuclear ssion occurs, energy is released because:

The mass of the product nucleus is less than the mass of the original
nuclei.

The mass of the product nucleus is more than the mass of the
original nuclei.

The sum of the masses of the product nuclei (and other products) is
more than the mass of the original nucleus.

The sum of the masses of the product nuclei (and other products) is
less than the mass of the original nucleus.
