    Option C

    your friends ball hits the ground at the same time as yours, and goes twice as far

    Explanation:

    The vertical speed is the same but the horizontal speed of your friend is twice yours. This implies the time to hit the ground is the same but after hitting the ground since the horizontal speed of your friend is twice, then the ball moves a horizontal diatance twice yours. Therefore, option C is correct.
