1a)Let the final velocity of white ball be vw ,the inital velocity of black ball be ub. Take the inital direction of white ball tavelling positive.By conservation of momentum and energy

(2)(200/1000)+(250/1000)( ub)=(0.5)(250/1000)+( vw )(200/1000)

0.25ub=0.2vw-0.275------(1)

However the right hand side might be negative too.So

(2)(200/1000)+(250/1000)( ub)=(-0.5)(250/1000)+( vw )(200/1000)

0.25ub=0.2vw-0.525------(1")

(0.5)(0.2)(2^2)+(0.5)(0.25)(ub)^2=(0.5)(0.5)(0.25^2)+(0.5x0.2)( vw )^2

0.125(ub)^2=-0.384375+0.1(vw)^2--(2)

From (1) and (2) or (1") and (2),we get two results

I think you should upload the picture.Since the direction of the motion of white ball before impact might be towars left or right

If it is to right,use(1),to left,use (1")

1b)average force on the black ball=(change in momentum of black ball)/time taken

F=[0.25)(ub-(+/-)0.5)]/t

1c)Lost of KE=initial KE -final KE=0.5x0.2x2^2+0.5x0.25x(ub)-

(0.5x0.2x(vw)^2-(0.5)(0.25)(0.5)^2

2a)take up as positive

(0.5)(m)(v^2)=mgh

v=square root of (2gh)

(200x1000)/3600=square root of (2x10h)

h=154m

2b)By s=ut+(0.5)(a)(t^2)

s=[(200x1000)/3600]+(0.5)(-10)(1.5)^2

s=44.3m

v^2-(200x1000)/3600]^2=2(-10)(44.3)

v=46.9

so it's KE after 1.5s=0.5x3x46.9^2=3300J

PE=3x10x44.3=1329J
