In which direction does a magnetic force act on an electron that is moving in the positive x-direction in a magnetic field pointing in the positive z-direction?
A) any direction in the xy-plane
B) the negative y-direction
c) the negative x-direction
D) the positive y-direction

The direction of magnetic force is the same as vextor v x B direction. It follows right hand rule, so postive x X positive z = negative y direction.
F=qE. The force direction follows magnetic field E direction. Hence a)
\[F=q*(V*B)\] take the cross product of the movement of electron and applied magnetic field
there is no force acting on the particle in the second question as the magnetic force acts only on those particles which are in motion.
