Can a person retreat to a neutral supply centre if he has no other option. And the neutral center is vacant and unclaimed.
If so, will the person claim that supply centre at the end of the move?
Though it can happen in very rare cases but still I want to know your thoughts...

Yes to everything. However, that spot cannot have been left vacant due to a standoff (bounce) in that country the turn before. And assuming that this retreat is in the fall, as supply centers cannot be claimed in the spring. Doesn’t matter if the center is unclaimed or belongs to someone else.

One may also retreat into an opposing country's unoccupied/non-contested prior turn center.

Also, your post says "if he has no other option." He may do so even if he has other options. It would be the preferred move strategically usually.

All of the above!

Basically, you can retreat to wherever you could normally move to with - at a quick think - two exceptions:
1. As mentioned above, you can't retreat to a contested location, ie one that is unoccupied due to a stand off (bounce), and
2. You can't retreat by convoy. The only unit that can receive an order in a Retreat phase is a unit that can retreat.
