(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); the answer of a "2 sig" calculation 0,098 = 0,10 ?

I did some university entry examination questions. There were values of some properties like mass, gravity etc given, they all had 2 significant figures. After using them in my calculations for some problem, I got the following answer on my calculator: 0.098. So sticking to the rule of giving your answer to the same sig. figures as the measurement with the least sig. figures I left that as my answer. However the answer on the solution sheet was rounded to 0.10, which also has 2 sig figures.

Both answers having the same amount of sig figures, which one is correct and why? Thanks :)
