Hint: Check the direction and velocity of the apple when dropped from the window of the train by the girl. Hence, determine the net acceleration acting on the apple dropped which gives the direction of motion of the apple. Also consider the speed of the train. From all this information, determine the path of motion of the apple as seen by the girl in the train.
