comment About Stellar Evolution
What other material have you covered in class? In particular, have you learned about the virial theorem? I'd rather try to point you in the direction of an answer based on what you've been taught so far.

comment Would it be possible to detect nuclear explosion on exoplanet?
Having already offered an answer to the pre-update question, I think the OP is looking for something a bit different. This requires knowing the waveband for the signal we'd be looking for, and what the potential starlight background would look like. But it might be a bit more interesting than the basic luminosity calculation. M dwarfs presumably aren't bright in gamma-rays...
