Horizontal and Vertical components

If resolving the vertical and horizontal component for velocity,
would the vertical component be height/time and would the horizontal component be range/time?

If you want to phrase it like that, yes. The thing is that you can use the same SUVAT equations for both the vertical and horizontal components, so you would need to distinguish both of them when writing your answers/workings.
