It was the first day of our second semester and we were looking for our hostel room numbers allotted, we saw that one of our friend was already allotted the room number last night and he challenged us to guess his new room number. We gave following answers

135, 780, 785 and 732.

He said, “That’s amazing”, “You’ve each guessed exactly one digit correctly and in its right place!”
Now can you guess what is his room number ?

For first digit there is just one option '1' as other three no's start with 7
The second digit can't be 3 (there is EXACTLY one digit correct in all answers) otherwise the first guess will have two digits correct; so second digit is '8'
Going with this same logic last digit cannot be '5' or '0'; so its '2'
Hence the answer is 182
