I have to do calculations based upon a bow shooting an arrow vertically, and I have to state any assumptions i'm making.

Am I right to cite air resistance as negligible; and that the displacement will start 2m above the ground (not at ground level)? The rest I'm ok with.

Yes, those are the assumptions.

Thank you very much
