For the first solution: OK, that's a solution. But I think there are more than one way to do it; The solution I have is :

"In that sentence, the number 0 appears 1 times, the number 1 appears 7, the number 2 appears 3 times, the number 3 appears 2 times, the number 4 appears 1 times, the number 5 appears 1 times, the number 6 appears 2 times, the number 7 appears 2 times, the number 8 appears 1 times, and the number 9 appears 1 times."

One possibility:

In that sentence, the number 0 appears _1_ times, the number 1 appears _10_, the number 2 appears _1_ times, the number 3 appears _1_ times, the number 4 appears _1_ times, the number 5 appears _1_ times, the number 6 appears _1_ times, the number 7 appears _1_ times, the number 8 appears _1_ times, and the number 9 appears _1_ times

Another possibility (?):

In that sentence, the number 0 appears _one_ times, the number 1 appears _one_, the number 2 appears _one_ times, the number 3 appears _one_ times, the number 4 appears _one_ times, the number 5 appears _one_ times, the number 6 appears _one_ times, the number 7 appears _one_ times, the number 8 appears _one_ times, and the number 9 appears _one_ times

And there's 3 more points for you!  However, doesn't the number 2 appear 4 times in your solution?

You're right, this was just a typo.
