detailed solution

Correct option is D

Remain in the same position relative to the water. We know when a wooden piece floats in a water kept in a beaker at rest we get mg=ρwvg , when beaker is accelerated in vertically upward direction then we get mg+a=ρwvg+a

We observe the volume of water displaced remain same so wooden piece remain in same position relative to water.
