I don't think any of the answers are correct.
If (d) denotes the area of a circle with diameter d, then for (4) the radius of circle is 4/2 or 2, and the area of the circle with radius of 2 is 4pie
For (6) the radius of circle is 6/2 or 3, and the area of the circle with radius of 3 is 9pie
(4)*(6) would be 36(pie)^2, which I didn't find in any of the answer choices. Are you sure the question is correct?

there is explanation in the book

(4) * (6)= (4/2)^2 *pi * (6/2)^2 pi = 4pi * 9 pi = 36 pi^2

now

pi * (12) = pi * pi (12/2)^2 = pi^2 *6^2= 36 pi ^2

Hence, the answer is d.


the last part I am trying to figure out :?

I don't think I get the last part either. And I scored 51Q on the real GMAT. What source is this question from?

(12)*pi does not mean 12xpi. It means the area of a circle that has diameter 12. So the area of a circle with diameter 12 =6^2*pi, so (12)*pi = 36*pi^2.

I guess I can only think of it this way. If the answer is (12), then it will make more sense.
