a truck and a car moving with same kinetic energy are stopped by applying same retarding force by means of brakes. which stops at a smaller distance?

The truck has a greater mass and thus, greater momentum. If same force is applied to both truck and car, then the car will stop first because of lesser momentum.

car will stop at a smaller distance because it has less mass than truck

so car will oppose less to change in its state of motion because mass is the measure of inertia.
