0 to 9 = 10 digits

palindromes = 9*10*1*1 = 90 IMO D

The number has 3 figures: XYX - the first X can be from 1-9, Y can be from 0-9, the 2nd X must have the same value as the first X, so only 1 possibility. 9*10*1 = 90 = D

The question is basically asking for the number of 3 digit palindromic numbers.

__ __ __ For the 1st blank there are 9 possibilities. (Since, 1st digit cannot be zero)
For the 2nd blank there are 10 possibilities. (the middle digit does not matter - will remain the same forwards and backwards)
For the 3rd blank there is only 1 possibility. (Since the 3rd digit must be the same as the 1st digit)

Next, multiply the number of possibilities for each digit: 9*10*1 = 90. OA: D
