Answer E...

3*3*3*3= units digit 1

7*7= units digit 9

9*9*9= units digit 9

So....

9*9*1= units digit 1.

3^4 = 81
7^2 = 49
9^3 = 729

Units digit = 1*9*9 = 1

Yes, it all depends on the number. You just have to learn the cycle
for example:
7^100 -
7^2 -.9
7^3 -.3
7^4 -.1
7^5 -.7
------
See the pattern, 7^..5 always has 7 unit digit.
7^10 -.7
------
7^50 -.7
------
7^100 -.7
