If we bring the south pole of a bar magnet close to a compass, the needle of the compass starts to point .


Correct Answer
A
towards the magnet
Your Answer
B
in geographic north
Your Answer
C
in random direction

Solution

The correct option is A towards the magnet
The tip of the needle of the magnetic compass is north pole and that is why it points towards the magnetic south or geographic north of Earth. If we bring the south pole of another magnet close to it, affected by its magnetic field, the needle starts pointing towards this magnet.
