Ranking Force/Impulse of Falling Objects with Initial Velocity

APPH12-SBR$N0

Shown in the image are four objects, with given masses, released with given velocities at the same height ($5$ $m$) above the ground. All four objects strike the ground and rebound in an elastic collision.

If the time length of the collision is the same for all objects, rank the force acting on the objects during the collision from greatest to least.
