The magnetic field associated with a current-carrying straight conductor is in anticlockwise direction. H the conductor was held along the east-west direction, what will be the direction of current through it? Name and state the rule applied to determine the direction of current?

East to west will be the direction of the current.

According to the Maxwell’s right hand thumb rule if the enclosed fingers shows the direction of the magnetic field then the thumb will always point in the direction of current flow.
