    Answer: (1) 0
    Explanation:-
    Given-
    a + b + c = 0
    Then, a = – (b + c) ,    b = – (a + c)   &  c = – (a + b)
    Then,
    = (a + b + c)2 + (b + c – a)2 + (c + a – b)2
     Put the value of a, b & c
    Then, (a + b – a – b )2 + (b + c – b – c)2 + (c + a – c – a )2
     = (0)2 + (0)2 + (0)2  = 0
    Hence, the answer is (1) 0
