You have the question and you have given the correct answer. So what is it you need help with?
It may seem counterintuitive, but if you have the same unit (1 cm) equal *half* the real measurement, that means the model will have to be *twice* as big to represent the same real life object.
Let's take a simpler example, with a real life object that was 30 meters long. With the first scale, 30m / 6m = 5. So it would be represented with a model that was 5 cm long.
But now if you take that and use the second scale, 30m / 3m = 10. So it would be represented by a model that was 10 cm long.
Answer:
D. The model would be *twice* as big using the new scale.

Yes. Isn't the SAT at least middle school stuff?

If on the original, 1 cm equals 6 meters, and the new model is 1cm equals 3 meters, that means 10.7 multiplied by 10.7 = 64.2. The new model would be half of that since 3 is half than six, therefore it would be 32.2
