    59 meters maybe? Because 21+3=24 so 56+3=59 just a guess!

    Height : Shadow 21 : 24 now make that side one of whose data is given , in your question the shadow is given and height should be find so i will make the right side 1 by dividing both sides by 24 21/24 : 1 7/8 : 1 now the shadow is 56 meter.. so multiply both sides with 56 (7/8) *56 : 1*56 49 : 56 this means a building 49m tall will cast the 56m long shadow.
