Dear Sanchit

total mass of body and plateform = 100kg

conservation of momentum in horizontal direction     100V + 1*10cos45 =0

V=-1/10√2 m/sec

negative sign indicates in the reverse direction.

time  of filght = 2*10 sin 45 /10

= √2

so in this time plateform will move  = V*t

= 1/10√2 * √2

= .1 m answer
