A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a tower at the same instant a ball is dropped vertically. Which object is hits the ground first?

A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a tower at the same instant a ball is dropped vertically. Which object is hits the ground first? Neither, they hit at the same time.

A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a tower at the same instant a ball is dropped vertically. Which object is traveling faster when it hits the level ground below?

A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a tower at the same instant a ball is dropped vertically. Which object is traveling faster when it hits the level ground below? The stone.
