Abstract: The uniform closure of the set of invertibles of certain $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebras is characterized. It is shown that indices on $ \mathcal{G}(C(A))$, where $ A$ is a closed annulus in the plane and on $ M_2^{{S^2} \times {S^1}}$ have continuous extensions to elements which are not invertible.
