The apple may catch some wind to slow it down. The bowling ball will hit the ground first.

Now if this happened in a vaccuum...

What will hit the ground first a bowling ball or an apple?

Assuming both were dropped from the same height above ground, in a vacuum both would hit the ground at the same time. In a significant atmosphere (e.g. average ground-level on Earch) the bowling ball would hit the ground first.

Will a 8-lb bowling ball dropped from the fifth floor drop before a 10-lb bowling ball?

Near the surface of the earth, all objects fall with the same acceleration; after any period of time spent falling, all objects are falling with the same speed, and have fallen the same distance. If there's any difference in falling behavior between two objects, it's the result of air resistance. If they fall through a region where there is no air, a feather and a battleship fall with the same acceleration. If they're dropped side by side, they stay side by side all the way down. This has been known for roughly the past 500 years. Right. The gravitational attraction is bigger, but so is the inertia in the same ratio.

Which of this object that has more inertia Bowling ball or tennis?

Since the lightest tenpin bowling ball is currently 6 pounds and a table tennis ball is not even an ounce, the tenpin bowling ball is heavier.
