Answer

The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

There are many examples. One is me carrying a box at a constant height at a constant velocity, for since the height is not changing, the box is not gaining any energy, meaning that I am doing no work. Another example would be me holding a computer while I am standing somewhere. The computer is gaining no energy, so I am doing no work.
