You are considering only one-dimensional motion. In this case everything you have said is correct. But it is not reflected in the text of the problem. Yes, we can assume, that this is a one-dimensional motion. But my point is, the author who introduces the problem, has to be accurate in making statements, so we don't have to make any additional assumptions.
