    Answer: (4) 36
    Explanation:-
    The average of three numbers = 21
    Then, the sum of three numbers = 21 x 3 = 63

    Let the second number be X, first number 2 X & third number is X/2.
    Then, 2 X + X + X/2 = 63
    ( 2 x 2 X + 2 x X + X)/2 = 63
    4 X + 2 X + X = 63 x 2
    7 X = 126
    X = 126/7
    X = 18
    Then, the first number is 2 X = 2 x 18 = 36.
    Hence, the answer is (4) 36.
