    I'm not sure if this is an actual quote or meant to be reported speech. If the actual words that came out of "her" mouth were "She didn't know you well at that time", then it should say:
    She said "She didn't know you well at that time".
    Alternatives, depending on context, would be:
    She said "I didn't know you well at that time".
    She said she didn't know you well at that time.


    2) I paid the round off amount (eg.out of 150 I paid round off amount of 100.)
    I don't know what you mean by this. The bill was 150 and you paid 100? Someone had already paid 50 and you paid the remaining 100? More information required.

    3) You noted the reference number. (Is the word used noted correct and can any alternative word be used?)
    This is OK. You could say "You made a note of the reference number."
    See above.

    Then I would say "I have paid a deposit of 100. I still owe 50 which will be paid at a later date".
