Consider an electron near the Earth's equator. In which direction does it tend to deflect if its velocity is directed in each of the following directions?
(a) downward: WEST
(b) northward .
(c) westward
d) southeastward

I go the first one right using the right hand rule and now I keep doing the right hand rule and I can't get the remaining ones right. I know the magnetic field runs south to north.
