    C. The South pole.
    Explanation
    The North pole and the South pole of a magnet have the strongest attracting force. This is because opposite poles attract each other, causing a strong magnetic force between them. The center of the magnet does not have a stronger attracting force compared to the poles. Therefore, the correct answer is the North pole and the South pole.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Like poles causes 2 magnets to ________ each other.

    Correct Answer(s)
    repel
    push away from
    Explanation
    When two magnets have like poles facing each other, they will repel each other. This means that they will push away from each other, creating a force that keeps them apart. The like poles of magnets have the same magnetic orientation, which causes the magnetic fields to interact and create a repulsive force between them. This phenomenon is a fundamental property of magnets and is commonly observed in everyday situations.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When a magnet is broken into half, the North and South poles still remain in each broken magnet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When a magnet is broken into half, the North and South poles still remain in each broken magnet. This is because magnets have a magnetic field that is created by the alignment of their atoms. Breaking a magnet into half does not change the alignment of the atoms, so each broken piece still retains its own North and South poles.

    Rate this question:
