    Answer: A

    Explanation: Neglecting air resistance every object will return to the ground at the same interval regardless of their weights, we can say that the objects are undergoing free falls, they are falling under the sole of gravity.

    No matter the weight of the objects or the elevation, without significant air resistance, they will reach the ground at the same time.
