If two objects are fired, both from a height(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); hand speed v_{0}, where objectAis fired at an angle θ with the horizontal and objectBis fired at an angle of 2θ, which will land with a greater speed?

It seems to me that the speed would be the same for both, although the velocity vectors would differ in their x- and y-components. Is my answer correct? The question asks to explain this without any equations, so I am having trouble justifying it. Any ideas? Thank you.
