can a radioactive nucleus emit an alpha particle and a beta particle simultaneously?

No, the radioactive nucleus does not emit alpha and beta radiations simultaneously. Some nucleus emit alpha particles, others beta particles and changes into a new nucleus and to balance the energy, gamma radiations are emitted.
