If a magnet repels an object, what can be said about the object?
The object is a magnet.
The object is a magnetic material.
The object is a non-metal.
The object is a non-magnetic material.
The correct option is A The object is a magnet. A magnet can attract or repel another magnet depending on the orientation of their poles. Like poles repel and unlike poles attract each other. A magnet does not repel magnetic materials. Instead a magnet always attract magnetic materials. Also the object cannot be a non-metal because non-metals neither attract nor repel a magnet. So, if a magnet repels an object, then that object is surely a magnet.
