dear chaitanya,

As the projectile is projected , the horizontal or the y component remains the same ( we have neglected air resistance )

but the x component will increase due to acc due to gravity,

therefore , v2 = u2 + 2as



 s=45 m

therefore v= 30 m/s ,

as we know that  tan(theta) = v(along y component) / v( along x component)

tan(theta) = -2/3
