The question is already simplified, but could be rearranged to look a little nicer.

When combine like terms, especially with variables, the first thing to do is look at the exponents (powers) each variables have. If the variables have different exponents, they CANNOT combine through addition/subtraction.

Since all 4 terms have different powers for #g#, they are not combinable through adding/subtracting.

Therefore, the one thing you could do is move the terms in order from greatest power, to least power, that way it looks a bit more organized.
