If x and y are intergers, I am sure that they can be 0 (because 0 is an interger).
However I dont understand why this one has D as OA??
Does GMAT define that Intergers do not include 0 ?

If the average (arithmetic mean) of positive integers x, y, and z is 10, what is the greatest possible value of z ?
A. 8
B. 10
C. 20
D. 28
E. 30

Question says "positive integers". 0 is neither positive nor negative. So cannot be considered here. So x=y=1 are the least possible value for x and y.

1 + 1 + z/3 = 10
=> 2+z = 30
=> z = 28
