You've messed up the fact that A starts 50 metres above the ground. They should both be at height h, not one at height h and the other at height h + 50.

Their respective equations should be

A: h = ut - 1/2gt^2 + 50
B: h = ut - 1/2gt^2

Not checked thoroughly, but I do notice that your "h" is the height above the projection point of A, whereas the question's "h" is the height above the ground.
