Gravitational potential energy

    The answer is c, but I can't figure out what is the reason, can somebody kindly explain it?

    What do you think about gravitational potential energy of a cubical block?

    I am thinking about centre mass...
    So what I am figuring is
    3m*g*(3/2 l)=9/2mgl...(3/2 l because the centre of mass is at that height)
    Is it correct?
