    Answer: (1) 253

    Let the middle digit be x.
    Then, 2 x = 10
    or x = 5.
    So, the number is either 253 or 352. Since the number increases on reversing the digits, so the hundred’s digit is smaller than the unit’s digit.

    Then, number is 253

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 253.
