# Which pole of a compass needle points to a south pole of a magnet?

North Pole

#### Explanation:

Because opposite poles attract.

The side of the compass needle marked as "North", colored as red or both is actually the North Pole of the compass.

The red needle points to the geographic North Pole of the earth. In another word, south magnetic pole of the earth must be located in the geographic North Pole.
