Solution

The correct option is A Cells will enter into cell cycle but get arrested in metaphase

Since colchicines inhibits growth of spindle fibres and the major role of spindle fibre is to pull the chromosomes to the poles during anaphase. So, colchicines treated cells will enter in cell cycle but will be arrested at metaphase.
