first digit 8 options, second and third 19 options (second digit two options, third digit - ten options, minus 0-0)-> 8*19=80+72=152 -> B

i get B-152. I considered the two cases separately; one case where 2nd digit was 0, and other case where second digit was not zero.

8x1x10 if second digit is 1

8x1x9 if second digit is 0

together you have 152

Let the code be XYZ
X can take 8 values-2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
Y can take 2 values- 0,1
Z can take 9 if y = 0 or if Y = 1 then 10 values

if y = 0 :
we have 8*1*9 = 72 options

if y = 1 :
we have 8*1*10 = 80 options
Total = 72+80 = 152.
