A
East-West
loader
B
North-South
loader
C
North-East

D
South-West
loader

Solution

The correct option is B North-South
This happens due to Earth's magnetic field. The magnetic south pole of the earth (which is also its geographical north pole) attracts the north pole of a magnet. The magnetic north pole of the earth (which is also its geographical south pole) attracts the south pole of a magnet. So, when freely suspended, magnets align in the north-south direction.
