Explanation:

Functional chromosomes cannot be created by joining segments of DNA taken from cells of different species. While it is possible to manipulate DNA and create recombinant DNA molecules by combining genetic material from different sources, creating functional chromosomes that can replicate and function properly is a complex process that is not currently achievable. Thank you for pointing out the correct option.
