In the traditionol sense of "pojectile," they can't. Gamma rays are photons, and do not follow the rules of classical projectile motion. Are you by any chance studying "General Relativity"?

This makes no sense. Try again?

Please give description as well as examples.of such reaction.
You have not mentioned any reaction. Perhaps you mean to use different words?
