What is the direction of the force acting on a current-carrying conductor lying in a magnetic field?

A. It is in a direction opposite to the direction of the magnetic field.

B. It is at angles to the direction of the current.

C. It is at right angles to both the direction of the magnetic field and the direction of the current.

I got C?
