Any force acting through A has a zero moment at A. Did you intend the leftmost force to be F rather than F? If it's F in the downwards direction, it's equivalent to F in the upwards direction.

The arrow shows the force is acting downward, so the magnitude would be F, not F. Is the answer Fยทd intended to be correct?
