Expert Answer:

Applying right hand thumb rule, we can find the direction of magnetic field lines.
ie, if we hold the wire with our right hand with the thumb pointing in the current direxction ie from east to west, the curling fingers will go into the plane above it and the fingers will come out of the plane below it.
