Do heavy objects really fall faster?

If two equally shaped objects with different masses fall down,

Which one will hit the ground first?

a. the lighter object (light objects accelerate faster)

b. the heavier object (because of higher gravity forces)

c. both land at the same time (mass does not matter)

d. It depends on the height of the drop

Let’s check it out by throwing stuff from a  60 meter high hoisting crane and at the same time dissing Galilei, Aristoteles, John Tickle and Daewo0 Nexia.
