Answer

(b)

Work Step by Step

To have the same height, the objects must have same initial velocity. If they have the same initial velocity but have a gap between their throwing times, they cannot be at their topmost positions at the same time. Hence, it is impossible for them to reach same maximum height at the same time if there is a delay between their throwing times.
