The LHS is a short circuit, so there's no resistance there.
The RHS comes down to 3 resistors in parallel.

You can Ignore the first part of the circuit as there is no resistance. To work out the resistance in the second part of the circuit you can use the equation for resistors in parallel: 1/RT = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3.

1) 1/7 + 1/3 + 1/(4+8) = 0.5595
2) 0.5595^-1 = 1.79

So the answer should be B 1.8
