**Q.**A loaded spring gun of mass 'M' fires a bullet of mass 'm' with a velocity 'v' at an angle of elevation θ. The gun is initially at rest on a horizontal frictionless surface. After firing, the centre of mass of the gun–bullet system

- Moves with a velocity v m/M
- moves with velocity vm/M cos in the horizontal direction
- moves with a velocity in the horizontal direction.
- Remains at rest

**Q.**Figure below shows two blocks of masses 5 kg and 2 kg placed on a frictionless surface and connected with a spring.
