    Answer:(3) 240
    The ratio of two numbers is 3: 4

    Let be the first number is 3x and second number is 4x.

    The sum of the numbers = 420

    3x + 4x = 420

    7x = 420

    X = 420/7 = 60, x = 60

    Thus, the first number = 3x = 3 x 60 = 180

    And second number = 4x = 4 x 60 = 240                       Ans.

    Hence, the greater of two number is 240.
