    Answer: (3) 3
    Explanation:-
    Let be the three numbers are X, Y  & Z.
    The average of first two numbers  = 2
    The sum of first two numbers (X + Y ) = 2 x 2 = 4
    Then, X + Y  =  4                     …………………………  (1)

    The average of last two numbers = 3
    The sum of last two number = 2 x 3 = 6
    Then,  Y + Z = 6                              …………………………………  (2)

    The average of  first and last numbers = 4
    The sum of first and last numbers = 2 x 4 = 8
    Then, X + Z = 8                     …………………………………….  (3)

    Add on equation (1), (2)  &  (3)
    X + Y + Y  + Z + X + Z = 4 + 6 + 8
    2X + 2Y + 2Z = 18
    2 (X + Y + Z) = 18
    X + Y + Z  = 18/2 = 9
    The average of X , Y & Z = (X + Y + Z) = 9 /3 = 3
    Hence, the answer is (3) 3.
