In fact they were three i.e a grand mother, mother and a grand daughter who ate three apples and one was left as such.

Digit 1 will come more and more when you count from 1to 1000.

Dauber – mother – granny.
From 1 to 999 all digits except 0 occur equally. Therefore 1 one more than rest

13. Abdullah Areef October 9, 2013 at 1:20 AM #

1: Daughter, mother, grand mother
2: Zero

14. Alli October 8, 2013 at 8:37 PM #

One is the Grandmother, one is the daughter and the third is the grand daughter.
Grandmother is mother of daughter
daughter is mother of granddaughter
so two mothers and two daughters –3 persons

1,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,21,31,41,51,61,71,81,91,100 for 1
10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 for 0
So the digit 1 occures most often

28. Muhammad Mazhar Qureshi April 28, 2013 at 4:56 PM #

1. Daughter, mother and grandmother
2. Zero

29. Sk Ashif Akram April 28, 2013 at 4:41 PM #

1. grandma, mother daughter- since grandma is the mother of mother, their are two mothers.
Similarly, mother is daughter of grandmother, so their are two daughters.
2.Common sense, it starts with 1 and with a number which contains 1.So, number of 1 is more.But till 999, no. of 1 is same as others except zero, which is always less.

• Sk Ashif Akram April 28, 2013 at 4:43 PM #

Qi: A Daughter, mother and grandmother.
Q2: The Digit 1 appears more than others.

• sharif123 April 28, 2013 at 11:02 PM #

agreed

35. Wrya April 28, 2013 at 2:16 PM #

Second: 1 appears more than others if u compare interval 1-100 we do not have 76 as 076 however in the interval 100-200 we have 1 as the first digit so 1 appears more than zero. So we can say that we have eqaual appearence for numbers 1,2,3,…9 but at the end we have 1000 which adds one more 1 to the number of 1’s.

• The Engineer April 28, 2013 at 2:28 PM #

I agree.

36. Abdur Rashid Khan April 28, 2013 at 1:51 PM #
