Solution

For a paramagnetic material, the relative permeability lies between 1<μr<1+ε and its susceptibility lies between 0<`chi`<ε.

Hence, 'A' is a paramagnetic material and its susceptibility is positive. This is because its relative permeability is slightly greater than unity.

For a diamagnetic material, the relative permeability lies between 0μr<1 and its susceptibility lies between 1<`chi`<0.

Hence, 'B' is a diamagnetic material and its susceptibility is negative. This is because its relative permeability is less than unity.

Here, μr and `chi` refer to the relative permeability and susceptibility.
