Energy of Flying Bugs

SATPHY-C1GKKC

The picture below shows five identical bugs flying with five different speeds at five different heights as shown. How does the kinetic energy of bug #1 compare to the kinetic energy of bug #5 and how does the gravitational potential energy of bug #1 compare to that of bug #5?

A
Kinetic Energy of Bug #1 1/5 that of bug #5
Gravitational Potential Energy of Bug #1 25 times that of bug #5
B
Kinetic Energy of Bug #1 1/5 times that of bug #5
Gravitational Potential Energy of Bug #1 5 times that of bug #5
C
Kinetic Energy of Bug #1 1/25 that of bug #5
Gravitational Potential Energy of Bug #1 25 times that of bug #5
D
Kinetic Energy of Bug #1 25 that of bug #5
Gravitational Potential Energy of Bug #1 5 times that of bug #5
E
Kinetic Energy of Bug #1 1/25 that of bug #5
Gravitational Potential Energy of Bug #1 5 times that of bug #5
