Expert Answer:

if the ladder is vertical then the work done= mgh     h=height raised.
if the ladder is inclined,then also,
after iot is raised by a certain ht  h the work done=mgh
and these are the work done by the porter against the gravitational pull of earth.so negative and stored as PE in it.
but if the porter moves horizontally, then W=0, as grav force and displacement making 90 angle.
