Answer:
let a be the acceleration of blocks. Figure shows the coordinate system considered to get componenets. 
Block of mass m1 moves in x-axis direction, hence its acceleration is only in x-direction.
Similarly block of mass m2 moves only in y-direction and its acceleration is only in y-direction.
 
X-component of acceleration of Centre of mass,  axcm  begin mathsize 12px style equals space fraction numerator m subscript 1 cross times a over denominator open parentheses m subscript 1 plus m subscript 2 close parentheses end fraction space i with rightwards arrow on top end style , where begin mathsize 12px style i with rightwards arrow on top end style is unit vector along x-direction
Similarly, Y-component of acceleration of Centre of mass,  aycm  begin mathsize 12px style equals space minus fraction numerator m subscript 2 cross times a over denominator open parentheses m subscript 1 plus m subscript 2 close parentheses end fraction space j with rightwards arrow on top end style , where begin mathsize 12px style j with rightwards arrow on top end style is unit vector along y-direction
