Is it possible that acceleration of a body is in one direction with motion in two directions?

Yes. In projectile motion, acceleration is only in vertical direction but velocities are in both horizontal and vertical direction. The horizontal component of the velocity remains same whereas the vertical component changes (due to the force of gravity and hence acceleration in vertical direction).
