Answer :

The trajectory traced by a projectile under the action of gravitational force will always be a conic section. When the distance thrown is small compared to the radius of the earth then the projectile follows a parabolic trajectory as demonstrated by the so - called projectile motion in the analysis of newton’s equations of motion. However, when the distance is comparable to the earth’s radius the trajectory is an ellipse according to Kepler’s laws. Therefore, the correct trajectory is (c)
