Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe that you are not stating the question completely. You haven't enough information. Is (B) asking the height of the ball relative to the ground when it hits the seat 120 m away, or the maximum height the ball attains on its flight to that seat. Also, is the seat at ground level, or is it some number of rows up... I think you need the height at which the ball lands in the seat and quite possibly the height at which the ball was initially struck.
