I would assume the unmarked pipe to be the lav.
#1 looks like a backwater valve cover and #3 looks like a WC
But it's hard to say without pipe sizes, underground layout or original floor plan

I completely agree with E I believe number 2 if you cut that cap off and you see a trap ( pour some water inside and see if it holds water) it would probably be the the shower. Although I kinda question that because usually when we plumb stuff in the floor for future bathrooms we would typically build a box out of 2 by 4 lumber and not put the trap on it. Then Masons would concrete around it so it would be open fill / gives the plumbers options to move the trap center instead of concreting it in and being stuck with what is in place.

Pipe Identification


Pipe Sizes - OD
#1 - 2-1/2"
#2 - 3-1/2"
#3 - 6-1/4"

The house is 6yrs old, and I do not have plans showing plumbing layout under concrete basement floor.

thanks.

Your lav pipe is in the wall.
Your shower is 2 inches
Your toilet is 3 inches
Your 6 inch is a clean out or a backwater valve cover.
