Question

# A freely suspended magnet aligns in ________ direction.

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

Solution

## The correct option is B North-SouthThis 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.Physics
