Why a magnet attract any magnetic material or iron, pls give reason

Expert Answer:

In such materials, there is an unpaired electron in the orbitals. So when a magnetic field is applied, they align themselves to act as an opposite pole and thus attract.
This is a very rough description and the exact discription is way above the scope.
