Collide and break!

A body of mass mm is moving along the xx-axis with speed vv when it collides with a body of mass 2m2m initially at rest. After the collision, the first body comes to rest and the second body splits into two pieces of equal mass that move with equal velocities at equal angles off the xx-axis 0<θ<900 < \theta < 90^\circ, as shown in the figure.

Which of the following statements correctly describes the speeds of the two pieces?
