i. There is no possibility

i. There is no possibility with same mac address for 3 switches.Even vendor can t be make the product as each vendor has unique MAC code. The root bridge election is combination of lowest bridge ID and MAC address. If the bridge ID is equal on all switches then it will look into ti lowest mac address which are unique.
