Solution

The correct option is B Anti-clockwise current will be induced in coil Q as seen by eye
Answer is B.

If currents pass along two parallel wires, each wire will set up a magnetic field and the fields will interact. Two parallel coil conductors which each carrying a current in the same direction will attract one another, while two such conductors which carry currents in an opposite direction will repel each other.
Coil P produces a magnetic field which is perpendicular to the current flow in Q. The force acting on Q will be at right angles to the current flow and at right angles to the magnetic field.
Now apply Fleming's left Hand rule: if we point the first finger in the direction of the field, the second finger in the direction of the current, and then our thumb will point in the direction of the direction of the force experienced by the conductor P.
Hence, anti-clockwise current will be induced in coil Q as seen by eye.
