Buoyancy and Fluid Statics

Hello! I need help with this question please. I solved it and found that Fb in water is 4.704 Newtons. Doing the same to find teh apparent weight in alcohol, I found that that equaled 0.98784 Newtons. However, the answer key that my professor made says it should be around 0.89. What could I be doing wrong? I found the Volume of the block to be 4.8*10^-4 while the key says it should be 5.5*10^-4.
