1)N2 has 3 factors
N = 2,3,5,7,11,13..... N is prime

N=more than 1 value = Not sufficient.

2) N is a multiple of 3

N = 3,6,9....

N=more than 1 value = Not sufficient.

3)Both combined

Only value possible from the above 2 sets combined = 3

N = 3.

Hence C)

Statement 1
$$N^2$$ has 3 positive factors

Here $$N^2$$ can be 4, 9 , 25
which will give 2 values for N=> 2 or 3
Insufficient

Statement 2
N is a multiple of 3
N = 3,6,9

Combining will give common value as 3, because 6 will have 4 factors
