Q. |
How many numbers are there between 100 and 1000 such that at least one of their digits is 6? |

✖ A. |
200 |

✖ B. |
225 |

✔ C. |
252 |

✖ D. |
120 |

**Solution:**

Option(**C**) is correct

numbers between 100 and 1000:

$= 900$

numbers between 100 and 1000 which do not have digit 6 in any place:

$= 8 × 9 × 9$

$= 648$

Unit digit could take any value of the 9 values (0 to 9, except 6)

Tens Digit could take any value of the 9 values (0 to 9, except 6)

Hundreds digit could take any value of the 8 values (1 to 9, except 6)

numbers between 100 and 1000 which have at least one digit as 6:

$= 900 - 648$

$= \textbf{252}$

The answer is actually 253. You included 100 when subtracting (900 total between) but you didn't subtract 1 from numbers between 100 and 1000 for when your math lands on 1 x 0 x 0.
