**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.
