Numbers, Numbers
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
There is a very special five digit number. The special thing about it is that its first digit describes how many 0s there are in the whole number, the second digit describes how many 1s there are in the whole number, and so one, all the way to the fifth digit describing how many 4s there are in the big number.
For example, if the second digit is 3, then there are three '1s' in the big number.
Answer
The number is 21200.
There are 2 zeroes, 1 one, 2 twos, 0 threes and 0 fours.

 wouldn't 30010 also work?

 ^^ No, it wouldn't because the second number says how many 1's are in it, and you said zero. But then you have a one later in the number.
That had me stumped, but it was really fun. Frustrating, but fun.

 Amusingly enough, when I first did it, I was dead positive it was 30010

 I got it pretty quickly by trial and error. May have just been lucky with my first guess. I figured there would be lots of zeros.

 I think 40000 also dies the trick n'est pas?

 No. Like i said before, in french. If you have 40000, then there is one 4, making it 40001.
Making it 30010.
Making it 31010.
Making it 21100.
Making it 21200.
Voila!
