Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Always check that the given year is Leap Year or normal Year. If Leap Year and February encluded then the extra/ odd day of that Feb. month will be 1.If Normal Year and February encluded then the extra/ odd day of that Feb. month will be 0. ( As per table no-II).

**Here, **the day will be count after the given date(1 January). So after 1 January, we get 30 days for January month and complete Feb., Mar., and April up to 5 days.

The extra day of Jan =2 (If 30÷7, the remainder will be 2)

The extra day of Feb.=1(**2024 is Leap Year **and so** Feb’s** extra day is 1) ☆ **SeeTable-II**

The extra day of Mar =3

The extra day of April =5 (April month has only 5 days so the extra day is 5, less than 7)

Total extra days=11 ( Which is greater than 7, so again must divide by 7 to get a total extra day)

Therefore, 11÷7 provide the remainder 4. Hence 4will be the final extra day of whole period)

Now given day+4=Friday+4=Tuesday.
