Count the days from months between April 1 and September 1 like this: April days = 30;May days = 31;June days = 30;July days = 31;August days = 31; So total days = 153. Since 153 = 21 X 7 + 6, so excess days are 6. So we can count the day to Monday + 6 = Sunday.

Dec. 25, 1977 noon

**D**

Dec, 27, 1977 noon

**Soln.**

**Ans: d**

The first watch gains on the second watch 1 + 1, 2 minutes in a day.

The watches will indicate the same time when the one has gained 12 hours on the other. As 2 minutes is gained in 1 day

∴ 12 hours is gained in days = ^{1}⁄_{2} x 12 x 60 = 360 days

Counting 360 days from 1st Jan. 1977, we get Dec. 27, 1977.
