Solution

The correct option is A Gravitational force and gaseous pressure force
A star remains stable, as long as the gravitational force of the star pulling in, is balanced by the gaseous pressure force pushing out. A star’s life is a constant tug-of-war between the inward gravity and the outward pressure.


If there were no such delicate balance in stars, they would actually collapse and disintegrate into space in a matter of a few hours.
