Solution

## The correct option is D All three will reach at the same instant. If G is universal gravitational constant and Me is the mass of earth and Re is the radius of earth then acceleration due to gravity g would be: g=G MeR2e So, the acceleration due to gravity is independent of the mass of the body. Hence, all the bodies will hit the ground at the same time.
