Solution

The correct option is C The magnetic field produced by a current carrying solenoid is not similar to a bar magnet.
A current carrying solenoid behaves like a bar magnet with fixed polarities at its ends. The magnetic field generated by a current carrying solenoid is similar to a bar magnet. The polarity of a solenoid can be reversed by changing the direction of current. The field strength due to a solenoid can be changed by changing the electric current or changing number of turns per unit length.
