Abstract: We provide an example of a zero-dimensional (separable metric) absolute Borel set $X$ which is not homogeneous, but whose square $X \times X$ admits the structure of a topological group. We also construct a zero-dimensional absolute Borel set $Y$ such that $Y$ is a homogeneous non-group but $Y \times Y$ is a group. This answers questions of Arhangel'skii and Zhou.
