Give in brief O2 is paramagnetic and N2 is diamagnetic​.

O₂ is paramagnetic because there are more unpaired electrons and N₂ is diamagnetic​ because there are no unpaired electrons. The number of unpaired electrons in O2 is 2, hence it is paramagnetic. Paramagnetic materials are materials that tend to get weakly magnetized in the direction of the magnetizing field when placed in a magnetic field.
