You can't get exactly 5 subnets without using VLSM. You can get 8 subnets by using /27 (255.255.255.224) mask.

Zeroth subnet is 192.168.100.0/27, first usable address is 192.168.100.1, last - 192.168.100.30

Second subnet is 192.168.100.64/27, first address is 192.168.100.65, last - 192.168.100.90

If you use VLSM you may get any result you want. It would not be deterministic.

omg thank you i thought my answer was wrong

but questions 1.3) how do solve it? what i get is 65~94 usable ip

As Fer said to get 5 subnet u use a /27 with the no of valid subnets as 8 and a block size of 32 with 30 being the valid hosts ( remember one goes for n/w address and one for broadcast ) so now.. calculate the range

Valid subnets --> 0,32,64,96,128,160, etc etc.. till 224

so to answer ur 1.3) how to solve it? the usuable IPs which u will get is from 192.168.100.65 - 192.168.100.94 ( 192.168.100.64 as the n/w address and 192.168.100.95 as the broadcast address) .. and that makes your answer right

Note: You still got 3 more usuable subnets which u can have fun with
