Expert Answer:

Ans-
 
Let the mass of the lighter stone be 'm' and mass of the heavier stone be 'M'.
 
Let us take vertically upward direction as the positive Y-axis.
 
Let us assume that initial velocity be u = 4 m/s and acceleration due to gravity be , it is minus because the acceleration due to gravity is against the gravity of Earth.
 At the highest point Velocity is zero, so final velocity is zero.
 
therefore using the formula
 
 
Therefore height is 0.80m for both the stone as their is no involvement of mass in it.
 
So, (C) is the answer.
