Work Step by Step

What causes an object to land in a certain location is the x component of its velocity. Thus, in the case of B, the object must be launched at a higher initial velocity in order for it to land in the same spot. Thus, because B is launched at a higher speed and a higher angle, it goes up further, causing it to land later.
