    This is the case of a projectile motion. The object follows a parabolic path.

    Thus d is correct. Acceleration on the bomb is just the acceleration due to gravity and is a constant. Thus b is true.

    If the air resistance is negligable then the bomb will be in the same horizontal position as the plane until it hits the ground. A is correct provided, air resistance is neglected.

    Time of flight is independent of the velocity of the plane. (E is correct)

    Thus Correct: a,b,d,e

    Wrong : c
