A projectile is fired with initial velocity vo at an angle θ0 with the horizontal and follows the trajectory shown above. Which of the following pairs of graphs best represents the vertical components of the velocity and acceleration, v and a, respectively, of the projectile as functions of time t?

Correct option

The acceleration is constant and negative which means the slope of the velocity time graph must have a constant negative slope. (Only one choice has the correct acceleration anyway)
