Q. With reference to Black hole, consider the following statements;:
1.Black holes are places in space so dense, with such immense gravity, that beyond a certain boundary not even light can escape from it.
2.They form at the end of some stars’ lives.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] .Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: C
Notes:

Both the statements are correct.

Black holes are places in space so dense, with such immense gravity, that beyond a certain boundary called the “event horizon,” nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it.

They form at the end of some stars’ lives. When stars, which are around twenty times bigger than the sun exhaust all the energy, they can collapse in on themselves forming a black hole.
