Dear School Leaders,
For MTLT#2, we asked you this question:
What is the correct trajectory of water falling down the stairs?
(Assume the surface of stairs is friction less)

The correct answer is: (C)

The potential energy of water is converted into kinetic energy as it flows down the stairs. Due to this as well as the friction less nature of the surface, the speed of water will continuously increase as it moves down.
