both will hit the ground simultaneously because the downward acceleration and initial velocities in the downward direction of the two bullets are same , they will take the same time to hit the ground and for half a projectile

The velocity of faster one is greater then outher one. And g downword will apply on both the bullets. So the resultent vector of slower one will be greaterly in downword direction . and finely the sloer bullet will touch the ground first.

both will hit simultaneosly because they both have initial velocity in the same dierction i,e; horizontally therefore it is horizontal projectile & in horizontal projectile “t” is given by (2h/g)^1/2 and they are fired from same position means from same height “h”therefore their time of desecnt will be also same.

Both will strike at same time because the vertical component for both is same as they are at same height and time taken by a projectile to reach the ground is given (2h/g)^1/2 ,it is independent of initial velocity and because of this both will strike at same time.
