Why does a body reach the ground quicker at poles than at the equator when dropped from the same height?

Answer:
The acceleration due to gravity is more at the poles than at the equator. The time taken for a body is less if the acceleration due to gravity is more when the initial velocities and the distance travelled are the same. So, when dropped from the same height a body reaches the ground quicker at the poles than at the equator.
