Seperates the patterns like this
582, 588, ?, 600.
605, 611, 617.

In each pattern add +6 and then;
588 + 6 = 594.
594 + 6 = 600.

I think 600 is the correct answer because 617+23 = 640 should come if they do it alternatively.

@Shashank

I have one doubt.

588+6 = 594
594+ 6 = 600 then
600+ 6 = .....?

In your point of view, we have options is there..
1) 605
2) 634

If we consider the series;

582+23=605 ----> 1st term
605-17=588 ----> 2nd term
588+23=611 ----> 3rd term
611-17=594 ----> (which is not 4th term) so instead of 634, it should be 594.
