I vote for n^4.

Divisors of n^4: n┬│, n┬▓, n and 1.

guess it should be all.

3^3 = 27 has only 4 factors(1,27,3,9).

so is 35(=5*7) = (5,7,35,1).

disagree. I forgot about n^4 itself.
I vote for np. Its divisors are: np, n, p, and 1—exactly four
Oddly enough, p^3 also has exactly four divisors: p^3, p^2, p, and 1.

Interestingly I changed my original intuition about the number itself being it's own divisor. After seeing there are two choices that will make the answer list, I figured it just may be one of those odd problems that would say you couldn't use the number itself as it's own divisor. Eh, oh well!
