I don't know, but I want it to be D: By 7-11 store chain to describe the pain from drinking a Slurpee to fast. Those Slurpees/Icees, etc, really cause a brain-freeze if yer not careful. More so than milkshakes and such.

It's not bananas; no color added there. Not butter; again, no added color(?). Maybe ice cream- for strawberry pink or chocolate brown. But Jello has tons of added colors. So C: Jello.

Hmm. We had a Magnavox Odyssey game back in the '70s or early '80s(?) that had Pong, or maybe a knock-off version of Pong. But I seem to associate PongTM with Atari. So, C: Atari.

I assume it's B: Nuclear, because once the fuel rods/pellets are used up they have to be replaced. And the radioactive fuel has to be mines and refined, like oil and coal.

This is kind of a tricky one: Most light bulbs rely on alternating current (AC), but bulbs in flashlights use direct current (batteries). Cars also have batteries, for the ignition and dashboard stuff- but rely on gasoline to actually move. Then there are electric cars; I assume their power is also direct current (from the batteries). So which is it?...... I'll go with C: Light bulb because I know for sure that battery operated bulbs are direct current. (Even some fans and portable fridges run on batteries. :-\)

Correct...and your comments on some bulbs being DC, via flashlights, is also correct, but this questions was making an assumption on a standard household light bulb.

After your explanation for the direct current question, I'll go with A: Car.

As for the timepiece: The stars in the sky are used to tell time, and they're all moving at thousands of MPH (the moving parts), and there are billions and billions of them. So- stars. (The galaxy, the universe).

Pretty sure it's D: Seaweed. I know that the sticky, gooey, slimy stuff in seaweed is used as a thickener, or emulsifier, in many things.
