A)
Toolbox:
  • Sum of the coefficient =$2^n$
  • If $n$ is even middle term =$\large\frac{n+2}{2}$
Sum of the coefficient =$2^n$
$\Rightarrow 2^n=1024$
$\Rightarrow 2^{10}=1024$
$2^n=2^{10}$
$n=10$
Middle term =$\large\frac{T_{10+2}}{2}$
$\Rightarrow T_6$
$T_{5+1}=10C_5x^5y^5$
$\qquad=252x^5y^5$
$\therefore$ Greatest coefficient =252
Hence (B) is the correct answer.
