NO, The given statement do not make any sense that the only possible of cube root of 8 is 2 while working with complex numbers.

According to De Moivre’s theorm of complex numbers, the cube root of any complex number must contain one real root and two complex/imaginary roots.

Therefore, for the given question stem there should have three roots.

One Real and two complex conjugates.
