Expert Answer:

The value of g ( = GM / R2 ) does not depend upon the mass of the object but on the mass of earth, so irrespective of mass , all bodies experience the same acceleration due to gravity. If a pen and paper are dropped at the same time from the same height in vaccum (in absence of air resistance), they will reach the earth together.
