    I'm guessing it's feet. In which case, as 1 foot = 0.3048 m 5.5 feet = 5.5(0.3048) = 1.6764 m Now it's obvious which is longer.

    Or, from the data in the question, 1 m = 3.28 ft Hence 5.5 feet = 5.5/3.28 m = 1.68 m

    Using common sense, 1 meter is longer than a few inches. A meter is over 3 feet, and a foot is 12 inches. The correct answer is b.
