No stress is zero a little below of the neutral axis. Stress is maximum at compression zone.

It must be zero at the neutral axis....

So correct option is D

Zero at the point other than centroidal axis

For curved beam bending stress is zero at the neutral axis, but bending stress is not zero in the centroidal axis.
