Explanation
In music, a bar (also known as a measure) is a segment of time containing a specific number of beats. The most common time signature in music is 4/4, which means that there are four beats in one bar. However, there are different time signatures that can have a different number of beats in a bar, such as 3/4 (three beats) or 6/8 (six beats). In this case, the correct answer is 8, which means that there are eight beats in one bar.
