Solution

## The correct option is B greater thanThe magnetic field at the centre of a loop is a straight line due to the sum of components of magnetic fields at the centre due to different parts of the loop. When we take a coil having 12 turns, the magnetic field at the axis is the sum of magnetic fields from each loop of the coil. Hence, it is 12 times the magnetic field due to a single loop, since the radii are the same.
