This is a tricky riddle indeed. Each page in a book has a odd and even number( assuming its printed both sides).Hence page number looks like 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 and so on..Now looking at above riddle.

7-8 is single page
99-100 is single page
101-102 is single page
221-222 is single page
223-224 is single page.

So total of 5 pages

The question was how many pages were torn not sheets of paper.  Pages (7,8,99,100,101,102,221,222,223, 224) were torn out

10 pages

7+8 - 2
100+99 - 2
101+102 - 2
222+221 - 2
223+224 -2

But then again its de stable which I'm not up for ☺
Technically still 5 because he did not put his hand to the book and tear 10 times
The question was how many pages were torn not sheets of paper
