Once because as soon as you subtract 10 from 100 it now becomes 90 therefore you wouldn’t be subtracting 10 from 100 anymore you would be subtracting 10 from 90 :) ;)

The answer is 10, this is because 100 is a single entity, the 90 is still part of the 100. If you want to use this as a trick question where the words are extremely ambiguous …then fair enough with your answer of 1. But if this question is set using a mathematical framework, then the answer is most definitely a 10. This of it this way, if you have 100 oranges, you can keep taking 10 away from it 10 times. This is because all the multiples of 10 – 20, 30, 40… till 100 are still part of the 100!
