A. A. 492
Explanation
To find the product of 123 and 4, we multiply the two numbers together. Multiplying 3 by 4 gives us 12, so we write down 2 and carry over the 1. Then we multiply 2 by 4 and add the carried over 1, which gives us 9. Therefore, the correct answer is 492.

• D.

D. 800

D. D. 800
Explanation
The original price of the book can be calculated by dividing the discounted price by (100% - discount percentage) and then multiplying it by 100. In this case, the discounted price is Php 560 and the discount percentage is 30%. So, the original price would be (560 / (100% - 30%)) * 100 = 800. Therefore, the correct answer is D. 800.

Explanation
The performers will arrive at 14:30 and it will take them another 2 hours to reach the venue. This means they will reach the venue at 16:30. The event director wants to brief them for 30 minutes before the welcome dinner. So, if we add 30 minutes to 16:30, we get 17:00. Therefore, the dinner will start at 5:00 PM, which is option C.

Therefore, figure C does not belong to the same group as the other figures, making it the odd one out.
