Amanda is holding a compass and notices that the north pole of the compass points toward the north pole of the Earth. She is confused because she knows from her science classes that the north poles of two magnets will repel each other. How can she explain this phenomenon?
The Earth's magnetic poles may have reversed positions while Amanda was observing the compass.
The geographic north pole of the Earth is actually near the Earth's magnetic south pole.
The north pole of the compass was probably pushed in the wrong direction by a nearby magnet.
The Earth's poles are not strong enough to attract any handheld magnets, so it was probably a coincidence that the compass pointed towards the north pole.

Thanks for telling us the answer. I had no idea about this.
