Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In a horror movie featuring a giant beetle, the beetle appeared to be 50 feet long. However, a model was used for the beetle that was really only 20 inches long. A 30inch tall model building was also used in the movie. How tall did the building seem in the movie?
