Solution

## The correct option is D 12For the minimum number of jumps, the horizontal range travelled by the frog should be maximum in one jump. We know that the range is maximum when the angle of projection is 45∘. Range of a projectile, R=u2sin(2θ)g So, maximum range, Rmax=u2sin(2×45∘)g ⇒Rmax=(√10)2sin(2×45∘)10=1 m So, number of jump required, n= distance to be covered / distance can be covered in one jump ⇒n=12 m1 m=12
