Expert Answer:

A magnetic compass always points towards the North—South direction. 
But we can determine the East - West direction. 
If the North—South direction is known, then the East—West direction can also be determined.
It is perpendicular to the North-South direction, i.e., perpendicular to the compass needle in the same plane.
