There are no such fractions. No matter how close a fraction is to zero, there are still infinitely many that are closer.

The 3 equivalent fractions of zero is 0,0, and 0.

I think you probably mean fractions whose denominator is zero. This is because you can't divide by zero.

The denominator cannot be zero.

the difference between two equal fractions is zero.

It reduces to zero. That is the Zero Property of division/fractions.

Fractions are infinitely dense and this means that between any two fractions there an infinite number of fractions. If any fraction, f, laid claims to being the nearest, there would be infinitely many fractions between 0 and f and so infinitely many fractions which were closer to 0. This means that f could not be the closest. The argument can be used again and again and so there cannot be a fraction closest to 0.

It is close to 1/8.

The answer depends on "compared with what". The fraction 3/8 is close to zero compared to 7/8, but it is far from zero compared to 3/80.Fractions are infinitely dense and so, given anyfraction, there are infinitely many fractions between that fraction and zero. All of these will be closer to zero. And if you pick any one of these, there will be infinitely many between it and zero which will be closer still. And so it goes on.

Zero.

The fraction with the greatest denominator and the greatest difference between nominator and denominator (number above and below the dividing line) has the lowers absolute value (is closest to zero).

Zero.
