  • science - ,

    Yes the bullet will hit the monkey as both fall with downward accleration of g m/s^2.

    Hint:
    The bullet will hit the monkey at a ht. S above the ground given by:

    S = V*Sin(theta)*t - (1/2)*g*t^2

    {V-initial velocity at an angle theta with horizontal}
    During this time t, the monkey falls by a distance = (1/2)*g*t^2
