So Golu created a puzzle using all 100 coins and declared that the one who will solve his puzzle will get all the coins. You desperately need money so solving the puzzle is only option you have.

Alexa can count only from 1 to 10

Alexa is the smart virtual assistance by Amazon. It is beating google now and Siri on non-screen devices. Alexa is hailed for its intelligence but it seems that the Alexa knows to count only from 1 to 10. By 1 to 10, I mean exactly from 1 to 10; neither more nor less.

In various languages, this is realized as an object, record, struct, dictionary, hash table, keyed list, or associative array.An ordered list of values. In most languages, this is realized as an array, vector, list, or sequence. JSON's basic data types are: Number: a signed decimal number that may contain a fractional part and may use exponential E notation, but cannot include non-numbers such as NaN. The format makes no distinction between integer and floating-point. JavaScript uses a double-precision floating-point format for all its numeric values, but other languages implementing JSON may encode numbers differently.
String: a sequence of zero or more Unicode characters. Strings are delimited with double-quotation marks and support a backslash escaping syntax.
Boolean: either of the values true or false
Array: an ordered list of zero or m…
