$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;19.6 \;m\\(B)\;20\;m \\(C)\;9 m \\(D)\;67\; m \end{array} $

Let the two bodies meet after t seconds. If the downwards distance covered by the body X is $h_1$ and the upward distance covered by the body Y is $h_2$ then the total height h of the building is given by ,

$h= h_1+h_2$

$\quad= \large\frac{1}{2}$$gt^2 + \bigg[ ut -\large\frac{1}{2} $$gt^2\bigg]$

$\quad= ut$

Where u is the velocity of projection of the body-Y .

Here $u= 100 ms6{-1} $ and $h= 200 m$ therefore $t= \large\frac{h}{u} =\frac{200}{100} $$=2s$

In $t= 2s$ the body X will cover a distance of $\large\frac{1}{2}$$ \times g \times 2^2$ ie. $19.6\;m$

Hence A is the correct answer.
