The majority carriers in an $n$-type semiconductor have an average drift velocity $\mathrm{V}$ in a direction perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field $\text{B}.$ The electric field $\mathrm{E}$ induced due to Hall effect acts in the direction

1. $\mathrm{V} \times \mathrm{B}$
2. $\mathrm{B} \times \mathrm{V}$
3. along $\text{V}$
4. opposite to $\mathrm{V}$
