Are you talking about Book IXX where she is going to test them with Odysseus's bow?  If that's what you're asking, she was going to marry whoever was man enough to string Odysseus's bow and use it to shoot an arrow straight through a bunch of axe handles.  In other words, she was going to marry the strongest of them.
