  2. Is magnet attract all materials?
  3. What we say the material which are attracted by magnet?
  4. If not attracted by magnet?
  5. In which direction bar magnet rest when freely suspended it. or magnetic needle or Mariner's compass.
  6. Recognize the north and south poles of magnet.
  7. Is north-north or south-south attracted?
  8. Is north-south repelled?
  9. What happened when kept the bar magnet near the magnetic needle or mariner's compass?
