why x rays cannot be deflected by electric and magnetic fields even if they are composed of oscillating electric and magnetic fields but can be bent by strong gravitational force

Electric and magnetic fields can only apply a force to charged particles, and as photons have no net charge (constituent of x-rays), they will not be deflected by EM fields.
