Generally, the higher the height at which an object is dropped, the higher the height of bounce back

This is because, at a higher height, there will be a higher gravitational potential energy store in the object so, when it is dropped, more energy is transferred to the object's kinetic energy store - the object will fall faster

As a result, when the object comes into contact with the ground and bounces back, more kinetic energy will stay stored in the object compared to when the object is dropped at a smaller height - the same amount of energy will be transferred to the ground and the surroundings, but the object will still 'keep' a certain amount of energy in it's kinetic energy store, depending on the height at which it is dropped

Hope this helps
