Solution

## The correct option is B 2Since in both cases, ball has same speed and thrown from same height of tower, so the time taken from tower to ground is same for both case because when first ball will reach the point of projection, it will also have same speed as was during projection. Thus, time difference will be the time of flight of first ball (upward thrown). Thus, time of flight =2usin90/g=2u/g=2(10)/10=2sec
