**Solution:**

Initial velocity components
\[
\vec{v} = 3\hat{i} + 4\hat{j} + 5\hat{k} \text{ m/s}
\]
Acceleration due to gravity
\[
g = 10 \text{ m/s}^{2}
\]
Time of flight
\[
T = \frac{2 \times 5}{10} = 1 \text{ s}
\]
Horizontal velocity
\[
\vec{v}_{\text{horizontal}} = \sqrt{3^2 + 4^2} = 5 \text{ m/s}
\]
Range of the projectile in the X-Y plane
\[
R = \vec{v}_{\text{horizontal}} \times T = 5 \text{ m/s} \times 1 \text{ s} = 5 \text{ m}
\]
