Dear tinu, if 1.72 m tall fielder jumps 2 m high then max height is 3.72. And we know the ball at its highest point has the altitude of 5.37 m. Of Course fielder will fail to catch the ball. You are absolutely right.

the question does not tell that the 1st fielder jumps 2 m high from ground.if i assume it was 2 m high from his length 1.72 m, then the total height is 4.72m. and he also fails to catch the ball. now question is is my calculation right?
