(b)

Inside a hollow pipe carrying current, the magnetic field is zero, [since according to Ampere''s law, Bi. 2pr = m0 × 0 Þ Bi = 0.

But for external points, the current behaves as if it was concentrated at the axis only; so, outside,

B0 = i. Thus, the magnetic field is produced outside the pipe only.
