    A. South pole 
    Explanation
    The north pole lies diametrically to the South pole. This means that the north pole is directly opposite the South pole on the Earth's surface. The term "diametrically" indicates a straight line passing through the center of the Earth, connecting the two poles. Therefore, the correct answer is the South pole because it is the exact opposite of the north pole.

    • D.

      Base north pole

    Correct Answer
    A. Terrestrial north pole
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Terrestrial north pole" because it refers to the northernmost point on Earth's surface. The term "terrestrial" means relating to the Earth, so the Terrestrial north pole specifically identifies the Earth's north pole. The other options, such as "Top north pole," "Sole north pole," and "Base north pole," do not accurately describe the Earth's north pole and are therefore incorrect.

    B. Magnetic north pole
    Explanation
    The term "north dip pole" refers to the point on the Earth's surface where a compass needle points directly downwards. This is also known as the "magnetic north pole" because it is the location where the Earth's magnetic field lines are oriented vertically. The other options, such as "north flux pole," "north direction pole," and "top north pole," do not accurately describe this phenomenon. Therefore, the correct answer is "Magnetic north pole."
