  • Question 13
    30 seconds
    Q.

    Which statement is true about the Big Bang Theory? Choose all that apply.

    answer choices

    It should appear longer because of a redshift.

    the universe formed by the rapid expansion of space from a point 10–20 billion years ago

    The universe is expanding because light from faraway stars and galaxies is shifting towards the blue colors.


    When stars and galaxies move farther away from each other, we say that the universe is expanding and that this is due to a shift in the frequency of light coming from these light sources.
