    Answer: (1) right triangle

    Explanation:
    The measure of three angles of a triangle are in the ration 2 : 3 : 5,

    Then, Let the measure of three angles of a triangle are 2 X, 3 X & 5 X.

    We know that,  The total sum of three angles of a triangle is 180 degree.
    Then, 2 X + 3 X + 5 X =180
    10 X = 180
    X = 180/ 10
    X = 18 degree

    Then, the measure of three angles are 2 X = 2 x 18 = 36 degree,  3 X = 3 x 18 =  54 degree  & 5 X = 5 x 18 = 90 degree
    We know that the right triangle has an 90 degree angle.

    Then, the triangle is right triangle .

    Hence, the answer is (1) right triangle.
