• ( 2 ) What was the day on 31st Dec,2011 ?

• 1) Monday
• 2) Saturday
• 3) Friday
• 4) Sunday
• Discussion in forum
Solution : 31st Dec, 2011 = (2010 years + Period from 1.1.2011 to 31.12.2011)
Odd days in 2000 years = 0
10 years has 2 leap years + 8 ordinary years.
Number of odd days in 10 years ( 2 * 2 + 8) = 5 odd days.
31st,Dec => complete year of 2011 (non-leap year) = 1 odd day.
Total number of odd days = (0 + 5 + 1) = 6.Given day is saturday.

Solution : 1st,we count the number of odd days for the left over days in the given period.
Here,given period is 9.7.2013 to 7.1.2014
July Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec Jan
22   31   30   31   30   31   7 (left days)
1+ 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 0 (odd days) = 0 odd day
So,given day Sunday + 0 = Sunday is the required result.

• ( 7 ) 1.12.91 is the first Sunday. Which is the fourth Tuesday of December 91?

• 1) 20.12.91
• 2) 22.12.91
• 3) 24.12.91
• 4) 25.12.91
• Discussion in forum
Solution : Given that 1.12.91 is the first Sunday
Hence we can assume that 3.12.91 is the 1st Tuesday
If we add 7 days to 3.12.91, we will get 2nd Tuesday
If we add 14 days to 3.12.91, we will get 3rd Tuesday
If we add 21 days to 3.12.91, we will get 4th Tuesday
=> 4th Tuesday = (3.12.91 + 21 days) = 24.12.91.

discussion

• Discussion in forum
Solution : Given that 1st October is Sunday
Number of days in October = 31.
31 days = 3 odd days(As we can reduce multiples of 7 from odd days which will not change anything)
Hence 1st November = (Sunday + 3 odd days) = Wednesday
