1) Horizontal range is directly proportional to the square of the speed. If the speed  of A is doubled, horizontal range will increase 4 times. Hence the new ratio of horizontal range will be 12 : 1.
2) Let at any instant, the particle is at P and velocity is y.
ux = u cos θ          uy = u sin θ
ax = 0                   ay = -g
yx = ux + axt          yy = ux + ax
yx = u cos θ           yy = u sin θ - gt
The velocity of projectile, 
 y equals square root of y subscript x squared plus y subscript y squared end root equals square root of u squared cos squared theta plus left parenthesis u space sin theta minus g t right parenthesis squared end root y equals square root of u squared minus 2 u g t space sin theta space plus g squared t squared end root  tan alpha space equals space fraction numerator u space sin theta space minus g t over denominator u space cos theta end fraction
