And what does she do with it? Normally, in English, we say she IS a meter and a half (tall). ;) (unless maybe...she's holding a meter stick? lol)

It could be a phrase out of context, consider the previous sentence (maybe): "How much rope does Ana have?" ... ... Ea are un metru și jumătate.

good point! (I missed it, same as the course gurus, our speech pattern is with to have, that we use also for age, "he/she/it is five" = "el/ea are cinci ani", hehe)

Se vede superficialitatea si slaba pregatire a celor care au alcatuit acest curs, este imposibil sa cazi de acord cu ei, dictarile sunt multe din ele incorecte, cunoasterea ambelor limbi e deficitara, cei care au coordonat si au corectal lucrarea au facut-o in scopul de a-si face reclama si a primi comenzi platite (una din aceste persoane, la o observatie facuta de mine a remar5cat ca ar fi absurd sa am pretentia sa cer ca un lucru facu gratis sa fie si bine executat).
