The actual speed at the start doesn't matter, since the bolts relative speed to the car is zero, when it gets loose. So the cars acceleration + the gravitational acceleration gives the bolt's acceleration relative to the car: \[a = g+ 1.2 m /s ^{2} = 11.2 m/s^2\] \[s = a*t^2/2\] \[t=\sqrt{2s/a}= 0.69\approx0.7\] therefore, it's b
