Well, here's 8 to start with.
This is another link:
1- The first one is simple:
It is not contradiction and it is not different interpretation , it is a lack of knowlage.
The mentioned 6 verses.
YUSUFALI: Behold! verily on the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve;
YUSUFALI: Those who believe and (constantly) guard against evil;-
YUSUFALI: For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme felicity.
So he is talking about the reward of the friends of GOD and it will not change. So it has nothing to do with the title of the contradiction.
The second one:
YUSUFALI: And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him.
It is clearly say no one can change GOD's words. And so for the other one.
YUSUFALI: We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).
Both verses simply say no man can change in Quran, or corrupt it.
Is this clear....
Now lets look on the other side:
YUSUFALI: When We substitute one revelation for another,- and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages),- they say, "Thou art but a forger": but most of them understand not.
Here GOD talks about himself who choose what to reveal.
YUSUFALI: None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?
Here also GOD talks about himself that he chooses what to tell us in Quran because he knows the best.
YUSUFALI: Allah doth blot out or confirm what He pleaseth: with Him is the Mother of the Book.
Again here GOD say he is the only one choose what to set in the Book. Because it is his words.
The three verses are talking about the same thing: That GOD alone who choose what to reveal into the book.
These three verse talking about a well know verses that exist in Quran give some law and other verses give more general law. Infidals thought that this is a change. So GOD say it is not a change, it is his choise. I can give more details about this point if you want.
So if the first two [018.027],[015.009] talk about that Quran can't be corrupted and the other three [16:101],[002.106],[013.039]
talkes about the GOD choose what to write in Quran, then where is the contradiction.
