(1) we can deduce that n>2
30^3=27000
Hundreds digit is Zero
(2) Lowest multiple is 3, so again we can find that hundreds digit is Zero
Answer D

Yes, 0 is a multiple of 3, but 0 is not a positive integer and it is given that n is a positive integer..
so n cannot be 0

1. 0 is an integer.

2. 0 is an even integer. An even number is an integer that is "evenly divisible" by 2, i.e., divisible by 2 without a remainder and as zero is evenly divisible by 2 then it must be even.

3. 0 is neither positive nor negative integer (the only one of this kind).

4. 0 is divisible by EVERY integer except 0 itself.
