a experiment to prove that a freely suspended or floating magnet always point in the north south direction

plz help got my trails!??!?!?! how do i get the ans to this question??????

That doesn't look like a question. It looks like a suggested experiment to prove a hypothesis.
What trails are you talking about?

Whether or not a freely suspended magnet points north-south depends upon how it is suspended. You also must realize that the earth's magnetic pole directions are not north and south in most places.
