#### Answer

The statement doesn’t make sense.

#### Work Step by Step

According to DeMoivre’s Theorem, any complex number has $n$ distinct ${{n}^{th}}$ roots. Hence, according to this theorem $8$ must have $3$ distinct cube roots. The above statement is violating DeMoivre’s Theorem for finding roots of a complex number and therefore the statement doesn’t make sense.
