If all the whole numbers from 1 to 1000 inclusive are written down, which digit appears the smallest number of times?

(192, 301, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300) >>>>>>Total Number = 2893 (0, 301, 600, 900, 1200, 1500, 1800, 2100, 2400, 2700)>>Total Sum = 13501

As you can see, zero appears a fewer number of times (192).
