Why does it take less effort to throw a marble than basketball?

Because the Basketball weighs more than the marble ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Most regular size, glass marbles weigh less about 0.16 ounces. A basketball weight about 22 ounces. When you throw something you have to accelerate its weight (mass) out of your hand, and a property of matter called "inertia" resists you. The size of the inertial resistance is directly dependent on the mass of the object, the bigger the inertia (mass) the bigger the resistance. Because of this it takes more effort (energy) to accelerate the heavier basketball compared to the lighter marble.

Which has more kinetic energy basketball or marble?

That depends how large the piece of marble is, and how fast each is moving. If you take a regulation basketball and a basketball made out of marble, and throw both of them with the same speed, the marble has more kinetic energy. But if your throw is any good, they both follow the same arc, and they both sink, for a total of 4 points.
