Q: Please show me example sentences with a universe of choice(does it mean many choice?).

This is because choice is still singular. If it were plural, this would change. 'A universe of choices' could be used to describe a large amount of choices one could make.

Synonyms of "Universe" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between the universe is expanding and the universe expands ?
A: Hmmm, I’m not sure, but I guess it’s because it’s not a universal truth in the sense that it’s not intuitive. Everyone knows and is capable of accepting that Earth revolves around the Sun, but we don’t really see the universe expanding on the same level. It’s a strange thing that’s hard to comprehend, and so we present it as new information pertaining to the now by saying “the universe is expanding.” Think of it this way: “the universe is expanding” sounds like the universe is expanding at this very moment - it is an urgent thing that is close to us. On the other hand, “the universe expands” sounds like something mankind has known for centuries - nothing new, nothing to discuss about. I don’t have confidence in this analysis though so take it with a grain of salt. :)
