    Hi aloko, welcome to PF.
    Before you ask our help, you have search for the relevant equations. Show your attempts. If you don't get the answer, we will see where you have made mistake.
    So proceed.

    Attempted solution

    a. for magnetic field B at point a,

    magnetic field, B=U*I/[2*pie*r], where U=4*pie*10^-7, r is the radius, I=current

    so, magnetic field at point a is; B= [(4*3.14*10^-7)*10]/[(2*3.14*0)]
    therefore B=0 T

    b. direction of the mag. field is to the right.

    c. magnetic field B at point b,

    B= [(4*3.14*10^-7)*10]/[2*3.14*1]= 2*10^-6 T

    d. direction of the mag. field is to the left

    e. magnetic field, B at point C

    B= [(4*3.14*10^-7)*10]/[2*3.14*2]
    B=1*10^-6 T

    f. direction of the mag. field is up.
