The correct option is A (a)SiO44; (b)Si3O810; (c)Si4O812
One silicon is bonded to four oxygen ions. No. of edges represents no. of oxygen ions.

1st image has one silicon atom so the formula is SiO44
2nd image has three silicon atom so the formula is Si3O810
3rd image has four silicon atom so the formula is Si4O812

Hence, option A is correct.
