Expert Answer:

Buoyant force is the weight of the fluid displaced so it depends on the volume of the body , density of the surrounding medium and acceleration due to gravity.

So the buoyant force is more on the earth as it has a larger volume than the moon. But are in the same medium air as mentioned in the question so that factor does not contribute.

However, the question does not mention where are the objects placed, as g can also be different
