    effective writting

    How can I write the effective sentence:

    The Burj Khalifa tower (also known as the Dubai Tower ) in the United Arab Emirates is 2117 ft tall.
    How long would it take an object dropped from the top to hit the ground?
    The Burj Khalifa tower (also known as the Dubai Tower ) in the United Arab Emirates is 2117 ft tall.
    How long would it take an object dropped from the top the ground?
    Which one is right? Is there the better?
    Thanks.

    1. How long would it take an object dropped from the top to hit the ground?
    2. How long would it take an object dropped from the top to the ground?
    Which one is better? Is there the better?

    #2 doesn't make sense.

    Don't put a space before a closing bracket:

    (also known as the Dubai Tower )

    (also known as the Dubai Tower)
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
