Solution

The correct option is C north-south
The earth acts like a giant magnet. The geographical north pole is the magnetic south pole, whereas the geographical south pole is the magnetic north pole. The north pole of a freely suspended magnet is attracted by the magnetic south pole of the earth. Hence, a freely suspended bar magnet points in the north-south direction.
