I don't get it. NONE of those numbers, when squared, give you anything close to 1 - i sqrt3. In polar form r(e^i theta), the magnitude r of a valid answer would have to be 2. None of the four choices comes close.

I agree with drwls.

I simply squared some of your answers and should have gotten 1-√3i

none worked, so none are roots.
