Good question. In fact, this is probably the most important SAT/ACT question you will answer. Keep this in mind when answering this question:
Colleges do NOT prefer one test over the other and neither test is objectively easier than the other. However, one test might be better suited (and thus comparatively easier) for you.
Taking the test that is better suited for you means you will already be at a comparative advantage when you start your test prep. So which one is better suited for you? Here is some information to help you decide:
The ACT Science section DOES NOT TEST your science knowledge! Rather, it tests your ability to interpret information from charts, tables, figures and graphs.
No one knows you better than you know yourself, so you should already have an idea of which test is better suited for you based on these differences. Still, the BEST way to decide which one to take is to sit down and take a practice test so that you get a feel for each test.
