## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think that

1. The induced current is counterclockwise

2. The current is zero

3. The current is clockwise

I am not sure about these answers though, and I have no idea how to solve for the direction of force. Please explain your answers if you can help me thanks
