    Answer is (4): a=b=c

    Explanation:-
    3 (a2 + b2 + c2) = (a + b + c)2
    If we put a = b = c
    Then, the value of 3 (a2 + b2 + c2) = (a + b + c)2
    3 (a2 + a2 + a2) = (a + a + a)2
    3 (3 a2) = (3a)2
    9 a2 = 9 a2

    Then, the relation between a, b and c is a = b = c.

    Hence, the answer is (4) a = b = c
