Answer
its due to lanthanide contraction.as the size of lanthanide ions decreses frm La3+ to Lu3+ , the covalent character of the hydroxides increases and hence the basic strength decreases.La(OH)3 is most basic and Lu(OH)3 is least basic.

Since ionic size decrease from La³+to Lu³+ the basic character of hydroxides decreases from La(OH)3 to Lu(OH)3. Thus, La(OH)3 most basic while Lu(OH)3 is least basic.
