Why the correct answer is tall and not big?

Because vysoký is tall and not big.

and where is the difference betwen big and tall? Sry for that question i m german. But i thought its synonym. Are you tall if your adult? so a boy cannot be vysoký only velky, right?

tall is big in the vertical dimension

A boy can be either.

"Big" benutzt man eigentlich nur für nichtmenschliche Sachen. Wenn man eine Person "big" nennt, kann das fett bzw. schwer heißen.
