    Answer: (1) 8

    Explanation:-
    Formula-
    Interior angle = (2n – 1) x 90/n
    Where, n = number of side in a polygon.
    Exterior angle = 360/n

    According to the question,
    Then, (2n – 4) x 90/360  = 3: 1
    2n – 4/4 = 3/ 1
    2n – 4 = 12
    2n = 12 + 4
    2n = 16
    n = 16/2
    n = 8
    Then,the number of sides in the polygon is 8.

    Hence, the answer is (1) 8.
