    Answer:  (1) 8 

    Explanation:-
    The dimensions of a cuboid = 8 cm x 4 cm x 2 cm 
    Then, the volume of the cuboid = 8 x 4 x 2 
     = 64 cm^3

    The edge of identical cube = 2  cm 
    Then, the volume of the cube = 2 x 2 x 2 
     = 8 cm^3

    Then, the number identical cube of 2 cm = 64/8
     = 8

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 8.
