Answer:

Since there is no friction no work is being done if the object is not being raised. so it takes no force to move the object.

Explanation:

Force is required to do work or to accelerate an object.

F = MA

If there is an acceleration it is not mentioned in this question. If there was an acceleration a force needed to achieve that acceleration, using the question above.

Overcoming friction is work. Unrealistically the question indicated that there is no friction. So moving the object requires no force.
