632
Explanation:
Let the 5 statements of the code be 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
From clue 4, we know that 7, 4 and 8 can't be in the code
From clues 1 and 2, we can say 0 is not in the code.
From clues 1 and 5, we know that 8 was not in the code either.
From clue 3 we know that 2 and 6 are in the code
And from clue 2, we know that 3 is in the code.
The 3 numbers are 2, 6 and 3.
Now let me show the order which they should appear in which one.
From clue 1, we can say 2 is correct though it is in the 3rd box
From clue 3, we know that 6 and 2 are placed in the wrong boxes
From clue 2, We know that 3 shouldn't be in the 3rd box but in the 2nd box.
Clue 5 tells us that only one number is correct though it is misplaced so this should be in the 1st box
So the code is 632
