A boy throws up a ball in a stationary lift and the ball returns to his hands in 10 s. Now if the lift starts moving up at a speed of 5 m/s. The time taken for a ball thrown straight up to return to his hands is:

The uniform velocity of the lift does not affect the relative velocity of the ball with respect to the boy. So, the ball will still return in 10 s.
