The correct answer to this question is The exponents on Expression #2 are greater than the exponents of Expression #1.

Expression #1
(3x^2) 3x^2
This is just equal to 9x^4.

Expression #2
(3x2)^2 x^2
This is just equal to
= 9x^4 * x2
= 9x^6

The exponent in expression 2 is greater than the exponent in expression 1
