Standard form: $- 3 {g}^{3} + 4 {g}^{2} + 8 g - 1$
Degree: $3$
Terms: $4$

#### Explanation:

In standard form, the terms are expressed from the largest to smallest exponent:
$- 3 {g}^{3} + 4 {g}^{2} + 8 g - 1$

Classifying by degree means to find the highest exponent of the terms, so the degree is $3$.

A term is a value split by the addition and subtraction operations, so there are 4# terms.

Hope this helps!
