a1=4; a2= 4+10*(4-1)=34
Similarly, a3 = 334;a4= 3334
Unit place digit is always 4, sum is 34+334+3334+33334+333334+----so on
I am getting 7 as hunndred's place digit.

a2=4 + 10(a1)= 44 not 34, however i feel like you might be on the right track otherwise, whats your thinking? I couldn't find a way to solve this quick enough

So the first term is 4. The second one is 4+10*4=44 the third one is 4+10*44=444, 4th one 4+10*444= 4444 and then we can see the pattern. Since we are only asked the hundreds digit we can simply do 444*8 (last 8 terms) and add the first two

So its 444*8 + 44 +4= 3600.

Therefore the option is D
