    There are two Possible solution-
    (BASED ON BASIC SCIENCE KNOWLEDGE)

    Solution 1: T
    Touch the end of one bar (A) to the middle of the other bar (B) forming a ‘T’ shape. If the bars are attracted then bar A is magnetized and if they are not attracted then bar B is the magnet. This is because magnets have fields at the poles (the ends) but not in the middle. So the end would attract and middle would not.

    Solution 2:
    Hang a rod from the ceiling and if it turns north than it is the magnetized rod. (Magnet orientation with earth magnetization property)
