The question is meant to expose the ones who look only for personal gratification from a role (money, status, esteem, excitement, glamour) rather than seeking opportunities to make best possible use of their effort, skills and experience, in contributing to the success of the organization.
The question is a potential trap for people who are more concerned with what they get out of a job rather than what they put into it. Employers do not really want to recruit gratification- orientated people as they are neither self-starting nor self-motivating.
What Surabhi has mentioned in her response is absolutely right. The response to that question should be a resounding 'YES'. And you should complete it by saying that "doing the best I can for my job is my priority and if it entails relocation; I am prepared for the same!"
