Answer

Neutral points are the points at which two magnetic fields are equal in magnitude, but opposite in direction. The net magnetic field at a neutral point is zero.

A compass needle if placed at the neutral point, will rest in any direction. Hence, we can find the position of neutral points with the help of compass needle.
