    1,2,3-trinitrobenzene, 1,2,4-trinitrobenzene, 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene.

    Once you've determined it's a benzene derivative, you just need to look at what different arrangements of the three substituents there are - so, after placing one; ortho- and meta-, ortho- and para-, both meta.

    This was actually a MCQ where they asked us how many compounds are there with a benzene ring and structural formula of C6H3(NO2)3...
    So apparently, there are more than one! xD
