9 is odd so 9 =9*3=27
6 is even so 6 =6/2=3

I think ive seen this before. I think we are suppose to express the answer in _ thus D would be the answer.

the right answer is D, and i can't fully understand how they came up with that answer. I choose A like you guys, but it was wrong.

I initially got D. If you have to express it in _ numbers than its 27. As 81 is a odd number
_81 =81/3=27
