Dear student,
The rectangular brick would be able to cover a longer range in the configuration 1 as the air drag in the second case would be more. We are taking a real life situation so there is going to be an air drag. For the configuration 2, the area of cross section along the direction is more and thereby the drag faced is more as compared to config 1.
Regards
Sumit
