I must agree. B is right.

eg. r = 560

10r = 5600

therefore the tens digit of r is 6.

Assume number = abcd. We need to know the value of c.

(1) abcd/10 = abc.d --> Tens digit is b. Insufficient
(2) abcd * 10 = abcd0 --> hundereds digit is c. Sufficient.

Why is B answer.. Can someone explain??
10r
65 * 10 = 650.. Hundred's digit is 6 but 10's digit is 5..
66 * 10 = 660.. Hundred's digit is 6 but 10's digit is 6.. so insufficient.

I think you interpreted the 2nd option incorrectly.

The ten's digit of the stem (in your case 65 and 66) is same as the 100's digit of 10r. We need to find the 10's digit of r and not 10r.

take other examples:

r =42 (10's digit = 4)
10r = 420 (100's digit = 4)

OA is B, thanks guys.
65*10 = 650
66 * 10 = 660
these are true cause the hundreds spot is 6 each time. However, the tens spot is ALSO 6 each time. the tens spot of r (65) is 6 and 66 is also 6.
