Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

We shall find the day on 1st April, 2001.

1st April, 2001 = (2000 years + Period from 1.1.2001 to 1.4.2001)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

Jan. Feb. March April

(31 + 28 + 31 + 1) = 91 days 0 odd days.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 0) = 0

On 1st April, 2001 it was Sunday.

In April, 2001 Wednesday falls on 3th, 10th, 17th and 24th.

15th august 2010 was which day of the week?

A.

Sunday

B.

Wednesday

C.

Thursday

D.

Friday

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

15th August 2010 can be written as 2009 + days from 1st January 2010 to 15th August 2010.

=> Total number of odd days in 400 years = 0

Hence, total number of odd days in 2000 years = 0 (as 2000 is a perfect multiple of 400)

Odd in days in the period 2001-2009:

7 normal years + 2 leap yeas

=> (7*1) + (2*2) = 11

=> Odd days will be 11- (7*1) = 4

Days from January 1 to August 15 in 2010: 31+28+31+30+31+30+31+15

= 227 days.

= 32 weeks and 3 days, this gives additional 3 odd days.

=> Total odd days= 3+4=7

=> 7 odd days=1 week= 0 odd days

=> 0 odd days= Sunday

Thus, 15th August 2010 was a Sunday.
