What was the day of the week on 17th June, 1998 ?

A.

Monday

B.

Tuesday

C.

Wednesday

D.

Friday

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

17th June, 1998 = (1997 years + Period from 1.1.1998 to 17.6.1998)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 300 years = 1

97 years has 24 leap years + 73 ordinary years.

Number of odd days in 97 years ( 24 x 2 + 73) = 121 = 2 odd days.

Jan. Feb. March. April. May. June.

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 17) = 168 days

168 days = 24 weeks = 0 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 2 + 0) = 3.

Given day is Wednesday.

What day of the week will be 8th June 2215?

A.

Tuesday

B.

Wednesday

C.

Monday

D.

Thursday

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Calculate the number of odd days from starting till 8th June 2215

**Step 1:**

2000 = 0 odd days

200 = 3 odd days

14 years = 11 ordinary years + 3 leap years = 11 + 6 = 17 odd days = 3 odd days

Jan till June = 4 odd days

8 days = 8 odd days

**Step 2:**

Add all the odd days

3 + 3 + 4 + 8 = 18 odd days = 4 odd days

Hence, 4 odd days indicates a Thursday (According to reference chart)

Therefore, 8th June 2215 was a Thursday.

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

5 years = (4 ordinary years + 1 leap year) = (4 x 1 + 1 x 2) = 6 odd days

(31[jan] + 28 [Feb]+ 31[Mar] + 30[April] + 28[May] ) = 148 dayss = (21 weeks + 1 day) = 1 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 6 + 1) = 7 = 0 odd days.

John was born on Feb 29^{th} of 2012 which happened to be a Wednesday. If he lives to be 101 years old, how many birthdays would he celebrate on a Wednesday?

A.

5

B.

3

C.

1

D.

4

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Let us do this iteratively. Feb 29^{th} 2012 = Wednesday => Feb 28^{th} 2012 = Tuesday

Feb 28^{th} 2013 = Thursday (because 2012 is a leap year, there will be 2 odd days)

Feb 28^{th} 2014 = Friday, Feb 28^{th} 2015 = Saturday, Feb 28^{th} 2016 = Sunday, Feb 29^{th} 2016 = Monday

Or, Feb 29^{th} to Feb 29^{th} after 4 years, we have 5 odd days.

So, every subsequent birthday, would come after 5 odd days.

2016 birthday – 5 odd days

2020 birthday – 10 odd days = 3 odd days

2024 birthday – 8 odd days = 1 odd day

2028 birthday – 6 odd days

2032 birthday – 11 odd days = 4 odd days

2036 birthday – 9 odd days = 2 odd days

2040 birthday – 7 odd days = 0 odd days. So, after 28 years he would have a birthday on Wednesday

The next birthday on Wednesday would be on 2068 (further 28 years later), the one after that would be on 2096. His 84th birthday would again be a leap year.

Now, there is a twist again, as 2100 is not a leap year. So, he does not have a birthday in 2100. His next birthday in 2104 would be after 9 odd days since 2096, or 2 odd days since 2096, or on a Thursday.

From now on the same pattern continues. 2108 would be 2 + 5 odd days later = 7 odd days later. Or, 2108 Feb 29^{th} would be a Wednesday.

So, there are 4 occurrences of birthday falling on Wednesday – 2040, 2068 and 2096, 2108.

**Correct Answer:** 4.

C.

Cannot be determined

D.

June 8, Friday

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

Radha: May 8, Thursday

Geeta: May 10, Thursday

Revathi: June 8, Friday

We know that April 1^{st} = Tuesday

⇒ May 1^{st} = Tuesday + Remainder of 30/7 = Tuesday + 2days = Thursday.

Also, May 1^{st} = Thursday

⇒ May 8^{th} = Thursday

Also, June 8^{th} = Thursday + Remainder of 31/7 = Thursday + 3 days = Sunday

⇒ Revathi is wrong.

Also, May 10^{th} = May 8 + 2 days = Thursday + 2 days = Saturday

⇒ Geeta is also wrong.

Hence, only Radha is correct.

Hence, correct date is May 8, Thursday.
