Work done by a force is given as

Given that force F is acting in upward direction so it can not be a gravitational force because gravitational force is always attractive in nature. So, the direction gravitation force must be towards the center of the earth. So, F is not a gravitational force. Hence, option (C) is incorrect.
The force, F is acting in upward direction while the displacement of the object is in right. So, the angle between the force and displacement vector is right angle. So, the work done by the force, F is zero. Hence , option(A) is wrong.
As the work done by the force F is zero so the displacement of the object is not caused by the force, F. Therefore, option (D) can also be eliminated.
Now, force (F) is balancing the gravitational force which is a conservative force because the gravitational field is a conservative field. Therefore, force (F) is a conservative force.
Hence, the option (B) is the correct answer.
