75.None of the pulsars emit pulses of visible light because
A.pulsars are to hot to emit visible light.
B.pulsars contain black holes that won't let visible light escape.
C.the gravitational field of a pulsar is so great that the visible light emitted is red shifted.
D.pulsars are too far away for the visible light to be bright enough to be detected at Earth.
E.A few pulsars do emit visible light pulses.

76.Millisecond pulsars that are very old are
A.believed to be the result of mass transfer from a companion that increases the spin of the pulsar.
B.all single objects.
C.not spinning as rapidly they seem because they have four hot spots that produce the flashes.

80.The singularity of a black hole
A.is found outside the event horizon.
B.is located within the event horizon.
C.can only be located if the black hole is in a binary system.
D.doesn't exist since all black holes have a finite size.

81.The escape velocity at the event horizon around a black hole is
A.smaller than the speed of light.
B.equal to the speed of light.
C.much larger than the speed of light.
D.irrelevant since nothing (including light) can escape from a black hole.
