Array modifier cause utensils to become smaller whenever I increase count

This is the tutorial I am following.

Whenever I increase the count of the utensils array reduces the size of the object.

Ctrl+A / Scale in object mode to reset the scale on all axes.

Set the scale of your empty to 1 and use Ctrl+A / scale for your chairs
To change the size of your empty, don’t scale it, just set its size in its properties

Apply scale (Ctrl+A) on the chair
Change scale on the empty to one one one

That should fix it

When I apply Scale on chairs they shrink.

You need to change the scale of both the chairs and empty

Clearing the scale of everything and then re appplying scale fixed it.
