Solution

The correct option is B False
The north and south pole of a magnet aligns with the Earth's geographical north and south pole respectively. Since unlike poles attract, the north pole of the magnet must align with the Earth's magnetic south pole. Similarly the south pole of the magnet would align with Earth's magnetic north pole. Hence, the magnetic north and south poles of the Earth must be situated at geographical south and north poles of the Earth respectively.
