**Q.**An iron ball and a wooden ball of the same radius are released from the same height in vaccum. They take the same time to reach the ground. The reason for this is

- Acceleration due to gravity in vaccum is same irrespective of the size and mass of the body.
- Acceleration due to gravity in vaccum depend upon the mass of the body.
- There is no acceleration due to gravity in vaccum.
- In vaccum there is a resistance offered to the motion of the body and this resistance depends upon the mass of the body.

**Q.**A person standing near the edge of the top of a building throws two balls A and B. The ball A is thrown vertically upwards and B is thrown vertically downward with the same speed. The ball A hits the ground with a speed vA and the ball B hits the ground with a speed vB. Then,

- vA>vB
- vA<vB
- vA=vB
- The relation between vA and vB depends on height of the building above the ground.
