Ring 3 Attachment(s) Hi, I have attached the question and the solutions to part a and b of this question. Would like someone to verify if I have done anything wrong especially with part b. Greatly appreciate it! Thanks. 
If you can't achieve clearer images, I would suggest typing your work. 
I'd say this is fine except I'm not sure what you mean by "S is a commutative ring for all $[a], [b] \in Z_{10}$." Surely you just mean it's a commutative ring? It's worth saying that if a ring $R$ is commutative, then the commutativity of any subring $T$ follows immediately. Indeed, for any $a, b \in T$, note that $a$ and $b$ are in $R$ so they commute. This sort of argument is why we only need to check a few things to show something is a subring  properties like associativity of +, associativity of x, distributivity, follow immediately by the same sort of argument. 
The subring test is a theorem that states that for any ring R, a subset of R is a subring if it is closed under multiplication and subtraction, and contains the multiplicative identity of R. 
I think you can finish it from here. but looking at the first expression the working is right with Z10
