About 2.5 cm in an inch so 115 cm is 46". Even if you don't know the exact conversion I thought most people knew 100 cm is a meter which is more than a yard so 115 cm has be a good bit more than 3 feet.

On the other hand, 3-year-old/6-year-old? They are both in the "short" category to me.

It's been a long time since I saw the movie. I know it's not A or D; might as well try 50:50 and hope B and C aren't the remaining choices.

BIL had the right idea (he said that 115cm was 1.15m) but miscalculated. 1.15m would be more than 3' (actually closer to 4' - 45.2").
