Answer

Sister chromatids may drift apart after being synthesized.

Cohesin proteins ensure that the sister chromatids stay connected with each other, during cell division. In the absence of cohesin, the cell cannot control the seggregation of sister chromatids as a result of which the spindle attachement is unclear (if the spindle attached is from a different pole or not cannot be ascertained by the cell).
