here's my take.

(1) the number can be
.246
.236
.226
.216
.206
Rounded to thenearest tenth it is always .2
SUFF

D

I think the intended trap is to think that we are concerned with the nearest hundredth, which varies. But the tenth does not. In fact, the 6 in the thousandth position is completely useless (well, its useful for ETS as a distraction), as it never affects the tenth place.
