# When a bar magnet is placed in earth's magnetic field, neutral points are obtained. At neutral pointNet magnet field is zeroEarth's magnetic field is not presentMagnetic field due to bar magnet is not presentHorizontal component of earth's magnetic field and magnetic field due to bar magnet are present and they are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

A
