It should be 3t.

Yes, it is 3.

Please explain.

How will be 3?

Vertical reaction : 3t.

Here, it is asked about the horizontal reaction : 0.

Hamza Cheema said: (Aug 28, 2020)  
It should be 2t.

Hamza Cheema said: (Aug 28, 2020)  
Yes, horizontal reaction is zero, you can check it by taking moment at B.

How is it possible? A should resist some of the horizontal load. It should be 1t.

Engr Hilal Wazir said: (Mar 19, 2021)  
I think the correct answer is 2t because 2t load is applied on the object at the right direction so balancing load will be applied at A in the left direction.

The answer is right because the support at B is showing resistance in x and why direction.

If you resolve the normal at B into Nsin45 and Ncos45 then 2t horizontal force is taken by Nsin45 component and horizontal at A will become zero.
