Dear shivanshi

its a question of projectile motion

initial velocity of ball is 1.52 m/sec in horizontal direction

the steeps are 20.3m high

 time take to fall this distance is

  h= 1/2gt2

 20.3 =1/2 *10 *t2

 t= 2.015 sec

in this time horizontal distane travell = 1.52 * 2.015 =3.063 m

since distance is less than 20.3  so ball hit the first step
