that you think is right.

1 Which answer contains metals that are all magnetic?


A aluminium
B cobalt, nickel, iron, steel
C copper, lead, brass, zinc
D iron, aluminium, zinc, lead

2 When two pieces of steel are pushed together they push away from each other. The force
that does this is

B the compass needle points to cold places
C the earth has a magnetic field and the pointer is magnetic
D the stars exert a force on the needle

4 A pupil sets up the test apparatus shown in the drawing. When they put sheets of different
