let H is maximum height ...

if initial velocity is u then

applying , v2 = u2 + 2as

at maximum height , v=0 , s=H , a=-g   ,after putting these

         0 = u2 -2gH     or  u2 = 2gH    ...................1

again applying , v2 = u2 + 2as upto that instant when its velocity was 20m/s...

   s = H/4 , v = 20m/s

           202 = u2 - 2g(H/4)         .........2

from 1 putting u2 in 2

        202 = 2gH - 2g(H/4)

       400 = 2gH/3

      H=80/3 = 26.7m

approve if u like my ans

if the maximum height is H then at one-fourth of this height

v^2=u^2-2gH/4, v=20m/s

400+2gH/4=u^2 .....1

now at the heighest point v=0




putting value of u^2 from equation 1


H=80/3 m
