Please elaborate a bit more on this :

"Any number from this range rounded to the nearest hundreds will be 9,300."

One of my doubts is, how are we converting the ten's and unit's place to 0 while rounding off ?

The statement says nearest 100.

Take few examples;

575: 575 is between 500 and 600 but which one is the nearest 100 to 564; 600 or 500; 600 because it is just 25 away from 600 and 75 away from 500. So; 564 rounded to nearest hundred is 600.

Likewise;

9,230 is between 9200 and 9300; but the nearest 100 for 9230 is 9200.

For the range; 9250<z<9350; take any number; 9251, 9260, 9270, 9299, 9300, 9315, 9340, 9349; there is only one number that is their nearest 100; that number is 9300.

So; if z=9260, then the nearest hundred is 9300

If z=9340; the nearest integer is 9300.

Thus, Statement 2 is not sufficient to uniquely deduce the hundreds digit of z. It could be either "2" as in 9260 or "3" as in 9340.
