The best answer is D A magnet is suspended freely always points in the direction North - South in the absence of any other magnet. This suggests that the earth behaves as a magnet that causes a magnet is freely suspended (or magnetic needle ) to always point in a certain direction, that is to say, from the North and the South.The south pole of earth's magnet is in the geographic north, because it attracts the north pole of the magnet that is suspended and vice versa. However, it is important to note that the position of the magnetic poles of the earth are not well defined because they are spread over an area.
