Solution

## The correct option is D (ii) onlyThe strength of an electromagnet can be increased by: 1. Increasing the current in the coil 2. Increasing the number of turns in the coil 3. Using a soft iron core inside the coil. Reversing the current in the coil will only change the polarity of the electromagnet but its strength remains the same.
