shed question

Question: Screenshot

I don't understand this question at all.
For (i), the diagram for (a) should be U upwards + R downwards (from ceiling) and 720 downwards (weight) for (b).
But in the answer section, there seems to be another R force added on both diagrams: Screenshot

I guess it would make sense if there was tool the man was using, such as a ladder where he exerts a downward force from his feet, but then I shouldn't be able to include it for diagram (b) as tools aren't allowed.
