Sunlight doesn't give off gas. It's energy - from the fusion of H2 molecules to form He - in the form of photons.

If you're referring to the gas inside the sun, it's diatomic molecules of Hydrogen and Helium.

About 70% of the sun is made up of hydrogen and about 28% of it is helium. A further 1.5% of it is Carbon, nitrogen and oxygen and the rest is made up of traces of other elements like as neon, iron, silicon, magnesium and sulfur.

What type of electromagnetic radiation does moon emit?

Moonlight is almost entirely reflected sunlight, with very small amounts of reflected starlight and earthlight as well. As such, it radiates at the same continuous spectrum as the sun, though it won't have the bright emission lines that the sun emits.

Do comets emit ultraviolet rays?

Comets are made of frozen gases and ice so when they get too close to the sun the gas and ice evaporate. As they orbit around the sun, the comet forms a tail, and the evaporation causes it to burn and give off light. I wouldn't call it "emitting" light though, because I think that to emit light, the object should be creating the light on its own. Comets don't emit light because without the sun they won't burn in the first place.
