The Quest for 700: Weekly GMAT Challenge

Each week Manhattan GMAT posts a GMAT question on our blog and follows up with the answer the next day. Are you up for the challenge?

The country of Sinistrograde uses standard digits but writes its numbers from right to left, so that place values are reversed. For instance, 12 means “twenty-one.” A five-digit code from Sinistrograde is accidentally interpreted from left to right. If all possible five-digit codes (including zeroes in all positions) are equally likely, what is the probability that the code is in fact interpreted correctly?
(A) 1/10
(B) 1/100
(C) 1/1,000
(D) 1/10,000
(E) 1/100,000
