\(\frac{1}{(\frac{10}{2})^{10}}\)

\(\frac{2^{10}}{{10}^{10}}\)

\(\frac{1024}{{10}^{10}}\)

\(1024*10^{-10}\)

(1/5)^10 is same as (2/10)^10. 10th digit after decimal in this is same as unit's digit in 2^10
2^10 = 2^5*2^5 - 32*32 whose units digit would be 4

Hi fluke,

but, inasmuch as I know tenth digit to the right of the decimal point is a first number after the decimal point. Please correct if I am wrong!

You are talking about the 'tenths' digit which is right after the decimal point.
'The tenth digit to the right of the decimal' is the digit that appears after 9 digits to the right of the decimal point.

(1/5)^10 is (0.2)^10

we know that 2^5=32 .we have (2^5) *(2^5) or 32*32=1024 since we have 10 zeros , our result is
0.0000001024

so 10th digit is 4

Yeah actually 1/5 = 0.2 = 2*10^-1

so 2^10 * 10^-10

2 has sequence 2,4,8,6.

Hence digit will be 4

Answer is C

Hope it helps

Cheers!
