Gravitational force as object moves up inclined plane

What is the amount of work done by the gravitational force as an object with a mass of 2.00 kg moves up an inclined plane that rises at an angle of elevation of 30 degrees? The question refers to the instant when the object has moved 0.600 m along the surface of the inclined plane in the upward direction. Neglect friction and use g = 10.0 m/.

6.00 J
-6.00 J
0 J
12.0 J
