For example,
b = Table[RandomInteger[{0, 9}], {10}, {3}];(avoid capitalizing your variables to prevent conflicts with Mathematica's own symbols)
One possibility is as follows:
{#[[1]], #[[2]]^2, #[[3]]^2} & /@ b
This is functional programming, where you don't have t worry about table lengths and all that stuff.
