Name the radiation which is responsible for the maximum biological damage.

Gamma (γ) rays. This is because Gamma (γ) rays have a very large penetrating power. So it can penetrate the inner cells of the body, ionize the cells. These rays have ionizing potential and are electromagnetic in nature and have the shortest wavelength and the highest photon speed. These are cancer-causing and even cause organ failures in animals and human beings.
