How can a valid (Project) build.gradle not show in 'Android' view?

Questions:

In Android Studio 3.0.1 Project window I select Android then expand Gradle Scripts

Normally the top of the list shows build.gradle(Project:XXXX).

It does not appear, but choosing Project window Project Files confirms it’s existance.

I have laboriously compared this project’s home directory to that of a ‘good’ project but nothing stood out.

The project was created from a recently forked repo via

File > New > Project from Version Control > GitHub 

The project builds correctly, honoring my changes to the project build.gradle.

This question may have been asked elsewhere but remains unanswered, so I am re-asking it with additional information!

Any insights or new avenues to explore would be appreciated.

Update
I have removed Versioning for this project and the problem persists. Have removed GitHub tag for this question.

How to&Answers:

For me this worked fine.

      1. Close the project  using Close project option.
      2. Import the project newly from android studio.

Answer:

You can delete .gradle and .idea folders in your project manually and reload your project, it helped me.

Answer:

I eventually circumvented this bug by simply renaming the project folder!

Re-creating the problem has proved impossible, but I strongly suspect a synchronisation problem in an obscure little file called project.dat.

Please refer to the answer I gave to the aforementioned question here!

Answer:

I had the same issue for android studio 4.0 alpha version, brought back android studio 3.6.1 and problem resolved
