Correct

- Grade IV carcinoma contains very immature and anaplastic cells.

- Grade IV carcinoma represents cells that look much like normal cells.

- Grade IV carcinoma means that the cancer is fatal.

- Grade IV carcinoma means that the cells are moderately differentiated and slightly abnormal.

Rationale

In grade IV carcinoma, the cells are very immature and anaplastic so that it is difficult to identify the origin of the cancer. It is not always fatal. Grade I carcinoma has cells that look much like normal cells and grade II carcinoma contains moderately differentiated and slightly abnormal cells.
