The compass determines direction by detecting and pointing towards the Earth's natural magnetic feilds. Earth, being a magnet itself attracts the magnet of the compass towards it.

The south magnetic pole of the Earth is near its geographic north whereas its north magnetic pole is close to its geographic south.

This is the reason why the north pole of the compass points towards Earth's geographic north because the magnetic south pole of the Earth is located there.

Hence the correct options are B, C and E.
