Expert Answer:

Magnetic field lines are approximately straight along  the axis of a long solenoid,

Each turn of coil generates a circulr magnetic field lines, since the coil is tightly wound, the circular arcs of those individual magnetic field lines, join up and make up a straight line along the centre of the solenoid.
