    Any magnet cut into irrespective no. of pieces will have 1 n-Pole and 1 s-Pole
    that is one of the properties of a magnet

    There has neer been a case where a magnet has been cut in half and one half been n-pole and the other be s-pole. I believe this property is one of the reasons why scientists have never been able to isolate a monopole.
