Work done by a force is given as
W = F S W = F S cos θ Where  θ  is the angle between force vector and displacement vector. If  θ = 90 W = 0
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.

An adventurous archaeologist crosses between two rock cliffs by slowly going hand-over-hand along a rope stretched between the cliffs. He stops to rest at the middle of the rope (Fig. 1) The rope will break if the tension in it exceeds 4.50104N and our hero's mass is 86.5 kg.

 Figure 1 a) If the angle θ is 13.0, find the tension iin the rope.

b) What is the smallest value the angle θ can have if the rope is not to break?

A model airplane of mass 0.750 kg flies in a horizontal circle at the end of a 60.0 m control wire, with a speed of 35.0 m/s. Compute the tension in the wire if it makes a constant angle of 20.0° with the horizontal. The forces exerted on the airplane are the pull of the control wire, the gravitational force, and aerodynamic lift, which acts at 20.0° inward from the vertical.

An 80.0-kg skydiver jumps out of a balloon at an altitude of1000 m and opens the parachute at an altitude of 200 m. (a) Assuming that the total retarding force on the diver is constant at 50.0 N with the parachute closed and constant at 3600 N with the parachute open, what is the speed of the diver whenhe lands on the ground? (b) Do you think the skydiver will be injured? Explain. (c) At what height should the parachute be opened so that the final speed of the skydiver when he hits the ground is 5.00m/s? (d) How realistic is the assumption that the total retarding force is constant? Explain.
