Why does a bouncy ball bounce in spite of gravity?

• the subject is science -

Gravity makes it return to the ground eventually. The bouncing is cause by the elasticity of the ball. Energy of motion compresses the ball, and it re-expands and pushes itself off the ground.

because of the force caused by you bouncing it
