##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Permutation and Combination: Remember, we are looking for numbers that have a zero in them, not numbers that end in a zero.

This will be the case for numbers from 37 - 41, 73 - 77, 109 - 113 and 145 - 149. There are 20 such numbers.

Overall, there are 45 numbers that have a zero in them.

##### Hence the answer is "45"
