Solution

## The correct option is C hit the target Initially, both have the same vertical initial velocity, i.e. = 0. After time t, bullet would have covered the same vertical distance as covered by the target because for both of them, u = 0 a = -g So, given sufficient space, the bullet will hit the target, no matter what's its horizontal velocity may be.
