Is it necessary that work done in the motion of a body over a closed loop is 0 for every force in nature ? why ?

    no...it's not true for every force in nature

    But when it moves from C to D the direction of the force vector is opposite from the direction from A to B, so it will still add up to zero going around the loop. Am I wrong?

    Forces in nature can be either conservative or non-conservative. Work done in a closed loop by a conservative force is always 0 .
