1 MB = 1000 KB

The 5.52 MB file is larger

A 5.52MB file is larger than a 5.52KB file.

Hope that helps you understand.

A 3.49KB file is the same as 0.0034MB.

And yes, this is very very small.

It depends what it is.

If it's a document, most files will be around 5KB-50KB, but it depends how much text and/or other things that are in the document.

It's extremely hard to give you a scale, since it depends on the files.
