a^3 + b^3 + c^3 -3abc = (a+b+c)(a^2+b^2+c^2 -ab-bc-ca)
x^3 + 8y^3 + z^3 - 3(x*2y*z) = 0.

So required= 6xyz

Given x + 2y + z = 0
—> x + z = -2y
Cube on both sides
—> (x + z)^3 = (-2y)^3
—> x^3 + z^3 + 3xz(x + z) = -8y^3
—> x^3 + 8y^3 + z^3 = -3xz(x + z) = -3xz(-2y) {Given x + 2y + z = 0}
—> x^3 + 8y^3 + z^3 = 6xyz

IMO Option A.

Pls Hit kudos if you like the solution

a^3 + b^3 +c^3 -3abc = (a+b+c)(a^2 + b^2 +c^2 -ab-bc-ca)...This is a formula

Now given:x^3 + (2y)^3 + z^3 - 3(2xyz) = 0 because (x+2y+z) is zero, zero*anything is zero.

x^3 + (2y)^3 + z^3 - 3(2xyz) = 0

x^3 + (2y)^3 + z^3 = 6xyz.
