A freely pivoting bar magnet
(such as a compass needle) is placed in a magnetic field created by
other sources. The figure correctly shows the alignment of the

true

as magnetic field lines emanate from the N pole and end in S
pole, so, the external field is created from left to right. and
thus the S pole of magnet is attracted towards the N pole of
external field and vice versa for the N pole of magnet….
hope this helps
