2 ^ n = n ^ 2 is possible only when n = 1 or 2.

Hence I go with C ie two.

I apologize if this is a real stupid question but isn't 2^4=4^2, Shouldn't it be 0,1 and 4?

Updating my original post - I think it's C, as n can be 2 and 4.

1. If n = 0, 2^0 (= 1) is not equal to 0^2 (0).
2. If n = 1, 2^1 is not equal to 1^1.
3. If n = 2, 2^2 = 2^2.
4. If n = 4, 2^4 = 4^2.

So only correct are 3, and 4.
C.

Thanks GMAT Tiger. This was way to easy to mess up. I can't believe I forgot 2^0=1 and 2^1=2. It's really sad. There is no hope for me.
