Can work done by a body be negative or positive?

The work done by a body can be negative when the force acts opposite to the direction of displacement. Work done by a force is positive if the applied force has a component in the direction of the displacement. Also, if the force acts perpendicular to the direction of motion, or if the displacement of the object is zero, then work done is zero.
