# Right Hand Rule

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.
