Solution

The given statement is correct.

Attraction and repulsion are the properties of a magnet.

The attraction takes place when we bring a magnetic material near a magnet or when two opposite poles of a magnet are near each other. But repulsion takes place only when the like poles of the magnets are near each other. Thus, repulsion is a sure test of magnetism.

Also, a magnetic material may attract a magnet.

Hence the repulsion is the surest test of magnetism.
