Dear student,

The deflection magnetometer is set with its arms in the east-west direction along the aluminium pointer or right angles to the magnetic meridian. The compass box alone is rotated so as to make the aluminium pointer read 0° - 0" on the circ{ular} scale. Then the deflection magnetometer is said to be arranged in Tan A or Gauss A position. It is also called end-on position because the axial line of the bar magnet passes through the center of the needle.


The correct option is 2)
