A. 2704
B. 2890
C. 2893
D. 3001
E. None of these


1-9
9 digits

10-99
There are 90 2-digit numbers
(90)(2) = 180 digits

100-999
There are 900 3-digit numbers
(900)(3) = 2700 digits


1000
4 digits


9 + 180 + 2700 + 4 = 2893
Answer: C

Each single-digit number requires 1 keystroke, so for all 9 single-digit numbers, it takes 9 total keystrokes. There are 90 double-digit numbers, each requiring 2 keystrokes, so it takes 2(90) = 180 keystrokes. For the 900 three-digit numbers, it takes 3(900) = 2,700 keystrokes, and finally, we need 4 keystrokes for 1,000. So, the total is:

9 + 180 + 2700 + 4 = 2,893

Answer: C

it should be 9+90*2+900*3+1*4
so answer should be 2893
