\(31^2 = 961\)
\(32^2 = (2^5)^2 = 2^{10} = 1024\)

1024-1000 = 24
1000-961 = 29
\(32^2\) is closer to 1000

D is the answer.

31^2 = 941 = 1000-941 ; 59
32^2 = 1024= 24
closet is 32^2

\(31^2 = 961\)
\(32^2 = 1024\)

\(1024\) is the perfect square closest to \(1000\).

Therefore, D is the answer.

We see that 32^2 = 1,024 and 31^2 = 961, so 32^2 is closest to 1000.

Answer: D
