## The Attempt at a Solution

I am having a little doubt as to how to think of the moving electron as a current .

I am considering the moving electron as a very tiny (infinitesimal ) current element . It is as if when the electron is at A , there is a very tiny current element at A . As electron moves from A to B , this small current element also shifts it's position continuously from A to B .

From Biot - Savart law , we see that the magnetic field depends on the distance . As the distance first decreases and then increases, the magnitude of magnetic field through the loop first increases , then decreases .The direction of EMF and induced current reverses direction .Option 4) is correct .

Is my reasoning correct ? More importantly is it correct to treat moving electron as a tiny current element which continuously changes its position ?
