### Kevan is 102 cm tall and D' Angelo  is 1020 mm tall. Who is the tallest?

• A.

Kevan

• B.

D'Angelo

• C.

None of them

• D.

Cm is different from mm

C. None of them
Explanation
The correct answer is None of them because although D'Angelo's height is given in millimeters, which is a smaller unit of measurement than centimeters, it does not necessarily mean that he is taller than Kevan. The conversion between centimeters and millimeters is 1 cm = 10 mm, so D'Angelo's height of 1020 mm is equivalent to 102 cm, which is the same as Kevan's height. Therefore, they are both the same height and neither is taller than the other.
