SCIENCE - HELP PLEASE!

Some materials are magnetic because...

A. their protons are magnetic
B. their atoms behave like magnets
C. they have magnetic fields around them
D. they have a north pole

(I think it's C.)

  • SCIENCE - HELP PLEASE! -

    Or no, actually, I think it is B because in order for something to become magnetic, the atoms' electrons have to be properly arranged. Would I be right?

  • SCIENCE - HELP PLEASE! -

    I would go with B.

    Thanks, it was correct. :-)
