A man walks in rain with a velocity of ( 5 mathrm{kmh}^{-1} ). The rain drops strike at him at an angle of ( 45^{circ} ) with the horizontal. The velocity of the rain if it is falling vertically downward is:
( (A) 5 mathrm{kmh}^{-1} )
(B) ( 4 mathrm{kmh}^{-1} )
(C) ( 3 mathrm{kmh}^{-1} )
(D) ( 1 mathrm{kmh}^{-1} )
