b. If the projectile is launched with an angle theta with the horizontal then only the answer is a. The formula to calculate height is: h= {(u^2)(sin^2θ)}/2g ; where u= initial velocity, g=acceleration due to gravity, θ = angle of projectile with the horizontal.
a. directly proportional to sin^2θ

Lets see - if it was proportional to cos^2(theta) then a projectile launched vertically should have reached the least distance - which clearly is not true. Hence, sin^2(theta). It helps sometimes to put in 0 and 90 as the values of angles.
b, becs, the vertical component of the velocity would be V cos(θ), and by applying the eq. of motion, v^2-u^2=2(a)(h) where, v=0, u= V cos(θ) &a=(-g), we find that the height, h is directly proportional to cos^2(theta). @ankurchiitd: Cos(0)=1 is the max. value for the cosine function, and when the projectile would be launched vertically, i.e. with 0 degree to the vertical, it would attain the max. height.
