Explanatory Answer | GMAT Number Properties

'n' is a positive integer.
Product of the factors of n2 is n3.

If the product of the factors of n2 = n3, the only factors of n2 are 1, n, and n2.
So, we can infer that n does not have any factor other than 1 and itself.
Therefore, n is a prime number.

Factors of n3 if n is a prime number are 1, n, n2 and n3.
So, the product of the factors of n3 = 1 × n × n2 × n3 = n6

Choice B is the correct answer.
