Let me give you quick answers with clear details.

1) Magnetic force always acts parallel to the direction of motion of the moving charged particle.

answer is False. Cause, the force ( also called as lorentz force ) always acts perpendicular to the Motion of the particle.

2) The maximum magnetic force that a charged particle ...
