    Answer: (1) 4 : 25
    Explanation:-
    The ratio of volumes of two cubes = 8 : 125.
    Formula-
    The volume of the cube = a3
    Where, a – side of a cube.
    Then, a13/a23 = 8/125
    Cube root of both side,
    a1/a2 = 2/5
    Thus, ratio of side = 2 : 5
    Formula-
    The surface area of a cube = 6 a2
    Then, the ratio of their surface area = 6 (2)2/6 (5)2
    = 4/25
    Hence, the answer is (1) 4 : 25.
