In this work the program is continued and completes the classification of the corresponding Lie algebras in dimension ten, for which the semisimple factor is $\s\l(2,\R)$. In the approach adopted here, one begins with a nilpotent Lie algebra {\it NR}, which will serve as the nilradical of the Levi decomposition algebra $S\rtimes N$ that is ultimately constructed. Here $N$ denotes a solvable extension of {\it NR}. Two key tools used in obtaining the classification are, the $R$representation, that is, the action of $\s\l(2,\mathbb{R})$ as endomorphims of {\it NR} and secondly the algebra of $R$constants, that is, the subalgebra of $N$ that commutes with the $R$representation.
