  1. e is the best answer, if you ignore
    d is worded poorly, distance is dependent on the height and the initial horizontal velocity.
    So technically, d and e are both not true. I am not certain if your teacher is playing games or not with the wording on d, but distance does depend on height and velocity.

  2. Its D
    The distance is also dependant on horizontal velocity not just vertical height
