Answer

(a) No net charge is enclosed. There is no net flux through the bottom surface, the flux into the left-hand side is cancelled by the flux out of the right-hand side. (b) Net positive charge is enclosed since the flux is outward on all surface. (c) Net negative charge is enclosed since the flux is inward on all surface.
