Solution

The correct option is **C** C

The close continuous curves in a magnetic field are called magnetic lines of force. Curved lines are used to represent a magnetic field, drawn such that the number of lines relates to the magnetic field's strength at a given point and the tangent of any curve at a particular point is along the direction of magnetic force at that point.

The magnetic lines of force are uniform and strong at the point C and they diverge as they move towards points A and B and the distance between the lines increases. Eventually, the strength of the magnetic field is strong where the lines are closer and they weaken as the closeness decreases.
