It conducts electricity.

Can iron conduct electricity?

Yes. Iron can conduct electricity. It is not as good a conductor of electricity as copper but it can conduct electricity. If you see a train or high speed rail with two wires hanging over the track, the top wire is a copper wire and the bottom wire is an iron wire. The copper wire conducts the electricity with very little loss of electricity. The iron wire is able to pass the electricity on to the train while withstanding a lot of wear and tear.

Can magnets conduct electricity?

Whether or not a magnet can conduct electricity depends entirley on the material of which they are composed. If its a metal magnet, then more than likely, albeit poorly. A magnet can CREATE electricity, by inducing movement in the electrons of a copper wire, as you can see in a generator (copper wire coiled into a cylinder with magnets moving perpendicular to the coil)
