Note:-
1.Each face has different areas.
2. We have to find out the measure of common side of any two faces.

HCF(12,45,60)=3=one side of the cuboid(say length)
Area face1=12=3*4=l*b
Area face2=45=3*15=l*h
Area face3=60=15*4=h*b
So l=3,b=4,and h=15

So area=l*b*h=3*4*15=180

Ans.(A)

All the three values represent l*b , b*h , l*h.
Multiply all and find the square root
$$(l*b*h)^2 = √45*12*60$$
= 180
