Quantum Chromodynamics permits the formation of charge conjugation parity violating domains inside the medium produced in heavy-ion collisions, resulting in an imbalanced quark chirality. With the presence of a strong magnetic field (as strong as 1015 T) produced by the spectator protons in offcentral heavy-ion collisions, this would lead to an electric-charge separation along the direction of the magnetic field, known as the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME). Experimental searches commonly utilise strategies involving charge-dependent correlators to measure the charge separation. These correlators are, however, dominated by a large background proportional to the elliptic flow v2. This article presents a systematic study of the correlators used experimentally to probe the CME by using the Anomalous Viscous Fluid Dynamics (AVFD) model in Pb-Pb and Xe-Xe collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV and √sNN = 5.44 TeV, respectively. The results from AVFD suggest that Xe-Xe collisions are consistent with a background-only scenario and a significant non-zero value of axial current density (imbalanced quark chirality) is required to describe the measurements in Pb-Pb collisions.
