Solution

The magnetosphere is the region of space surrounding earth where the dominant magnetic field is the magnetic field of Earth, rather than the magnetic field of interplanetary space. Earth’s magnetic field is developed due to a phenomenon called dynamo effect. It means the generation of a magnetic field due to rotating current. This electric current is a result of the spiral eddies generated due to earth’s rotation and vertical currents formed due to the temperature difference between the outer core and inner core.
