Draw a photo first. this can sort a triangle from the airplane immediately all the way down to the floor, up the hill, and then again horizontally to the airplane. you note of between the legs and from trig you'll locate out between the angles. From that practise you locate out that horizontal area of the traingle (that is the area the pilot will fly earlier he hits the floor. once you locate this distance, use the formula d=v*t with d=distance, v=speed, t=time to remedy for a way lengthy the pilot has until eventually hitting the floor.

D is correct.
