    Answer:

    Fusion or pairing does not occur.

    Explanation:

    Inversions mutation leads to lowered fertility due to production of unbalanced gametes in the meiosis cell division. Chromosome inversions have no effect on mitosis, but they has affect meiosis because inversions changes the gametes which is only present in meiosis. If an inversion present is in the heterozygous condition, pairing of chromosomes cannot occur in a simple linear fashion due to change of sizes. But if the inverted chromosome segment has the proper size so it can paired with each other.
