In stable : B is above G.

No, it is wrong answer, B should be below the G for the Stable equilibrium.

Good answer @Jana.

@Ankit and @Jana. When there is floating body then only b should below g for stable equilibrium.

For submerged or immersed body g should be below b.

For stable equilibrium, the centre of buoyancy should below the centre of gravity and meta centre should above the centre of gravity.

For submerged body B lies above G.

There are two conditions:

1. Submerged body.
2. Floating body answer is right for the submerged body.
