- 2. What was the day of the week on, 16
^{th}July, 1776?

Answer: Option B

Explanation:**16**

Counting of odd days :

1600 years have 0 odd day. 100 years have 5 odd days.

75 years = (18 leap years + 57 ordinary years)

= [(18 x 2) + (57 x 1)] odd days = 93 odd days

= (13 weeks + 2 days) = 2 odd days.

∴ 1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 7 odd days = 0 odd day.

Jan. Feb. March April May June July

31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 +16 = 198days

= (28 weeks + 2 days) =2days

∴ Total number of odd days = (0 + 2) = 2. Required day was 'Tuesday'.

Here,given period is 10.8.2012 to 10.6.2013
Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun
21 30 31 30 31 31 28 31 30 31 10(left days)
0 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 0 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 3 (odd days) = 24 => 24/7 = 3 odd days
So,given day Friday + 3 = 5 + 3 = 8 => 8/7 = 1 odd day. Monday is the required result.**
