Why do you think that's the answer?

because the motion of the bullet will be projectile so it would hit the target that is down

I suspect the two choices were meant to be something like this:
(1) A kid fires directly at a stationary target.
(2) A second kid fires directly at a target that begins to fall under gravity the moment he pulls the trigger.

ya thats the exact question
