A given "torus" is made from a given circle rotated around a point on its circumference and inscribing maximum volume. What is its genus?

That is, a torus with a singularity as a hole.

Anyone want to hazard a guess at the question about the genus of a toroid with a singular hole?

I'll hazard a guess. Genus 1. No tearing required.
