    Answer: (2) 600

    Explanation:-
    The ratio of three numbers = 2: 5: 10
    Let the three numbers be 2X, 5X and 10X.

    The sum of three numbers = 1020
    Then, 2X + 5X + 10X = 1020
    17 X = 1020
    X = 1020/17
    X = 60

    Then, the greatest number is 10X = 60 x 10 = 600

    Hence, the answer is (2) 600.
