See below.

Explanation:

Question:
Which statement best describes the value of (in details) ?
# √8 #

It appears that the list of possible values is missing from the question. However, if the question is about evaluating the number showing below the question, here is one possible solution.
{You will have to check this against your list of possible answers.}

# sqrt(8) = sqrt(4 * 2) = sqrt(2^2 * 2) #
# sqrt(8) = sqrt(2^2 * 2) = sqrt(2^2) * sqrt(2) #
# sqrt(8) = 2 * sqrt(2) #

It is possible that your list includes something else, so let's go one more step.
Scratch work.
# sqrt(2) ~~ 1.414 #

So,
# sqrt(8) ~~ 2 * (1.414) #
# sqrt(8) ~~ 2.828 #

I hope this helps.
