A spinning neutron star is known as ?

(1) White dwarf
(2) Black hole
(3) Pulsar
(4) Quasar

Correct Answer : (3) The spinning neutron star is known as Pulsar.

Explanation :

Pulsars are spinning neutron stars that have jets of particles moving almost at the speed of light streaming out above their magnetic poles.

These jets produce very powerful beams of light.

A pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star and it is the small, incredibly dense remnant of a much more massive star. These are so dense that a teaspoon pulsar would weigh as much as Mount Everest.

Pulsars have very strong magnetic fields which funnel jets of particles out along the two magnetic poles.
