Solution

When the elevator is descending, a pseudo-force acts on it in the upward direction, as shown in the figure.  

From the free-body diagram of block A,
\[mg - N = ma\]
\[N = m\left( g - a \right)\]
\[ \Rightarrow N = 0 . 5\left( 10 - 2 \right) = 4 N\]
So, the force exerted by the block A on the block B is 4 N..

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
