Hi riddhish! :smile:

First, weed out the irrelevant detail …

The question is the same as:
Launch an object at 45º so that, after it reaches its greatest height, it reaches height 2D between L and L + D, where L is the initial horizontal distance.

So start "Let the initial velocity be v", and carry on from there! :smile:
