Ans: a

Count the days from months between February 15 and June 20 like this: February days = 28;March days = 31;April days = 30;May days = 31;Add 20 days of June. Subtract 15 days of February. So total days = 125. Since 125 = 17 X 7 + 6, so excess days are 6. So we can count the day to Monday + 6 = Sunday.

Question 2

Sunita is 14 weeks and 11 days older than me, whereas Kirat is 17 weeks and 14 days older than Sunita. If Kirat was born on a Wednesday, on which day of the week was I born?

Sunday.

Thursday.

C

Friday.

D

Tuesday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Kirat is 14 + 17 = 31 weeks and 11 + 14 = 25 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 25 days alone. Since 25 = 3 X 7 + 4, the excess days are 4. So we can count the day to Wednesday + 4 = Sunday.

Monday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Count the days from months between February 1 and March 1 like this: February days = 28; So total days = 28. Since 28 = 4 X 7 + 0, so excess days are 0. So we can count the day to Friday + 0 = Friday.

According to Geeta, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26. According to Seeta, Geeta was present on 23rd. It was a public holiday on 24, and Sunday on 26. So we can rule out 23, 24 and 26. Hence, Geeta had taken leave either on 22nd or 25th October.

Question 5
