to ans ur qn for part (a),
u r considering energy change from position A to position B, not from P to B.
hence, the h value in mgh is from A to B, but Only consider the vertical height change, i.e. MB, not AB, and of cuz not PB.

hope this ans ur qn.

You must consider the vertical height difference between the starting point of the object at A, and the ending point at B.
