Why is it easier to pull a heavy object than to push it on a level ground?

Answers (1)
When you push there is one component of the force that adds to the weight of the body and hence there is more friction. When you pull the vertical component of force is against the weight of body and hence there is less overall friction. So it is easy to pull than push an object.
