It will be 5.
how?
as from the questions the number are in the sequence.
first 9 digit from 1 to 9. next 45, 2-digit number from 10 to 54 will make 90 digit.
so from 1 to 54 its total 99 digit, the next number is 55, 100th and 101th digit.
so the 100th digit is 5.

I disagree, and this is not a GMAT question.

You can have:

$$0.1234567891011121314151617181920219 = \frac{1234567891011121314151617181920219}{1000000000000000000000000000000000}$$

In which case the 100th digit is 0.

Or you can have

$$0.123456789101112131415161718192021900000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000009 = \frac{123456789101112131415161718192021900000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000009 }{100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000}$$

The 100th digit is 9.
