Hi

Consider the example of gravitational force, it is analogous to the force mentioned here which varies inversely as square of distance. Seeing the analogy u can predict the path. Hence , the path is parabolic.

it would be a parabola

NLM is applicable to particle and not to bodies.

for a block we apply it considering it to be a particle or at the center of mass of the body which is a particle

so consider your question to electrostatics coloumb inverse square law

F is inversely proportional to square of distance

so it would be a parabola if you got me explanation.
