If today is Monday, what will be the day one year and 50 days from now?
Cannot be determined
Cannot be determined, as we don’t know if it is a leap year or not.
The calendar for the year 1984 is same as which upcoming year.
Starting with 1984, we go on counting the number of odd days till sum is divisible by 7.
Year 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989
Odd days 2 1 1 1 2 = 7 odd days = 1 week
=>0 odd day.
Calendar for 1984 will be the same as that of 1989.
what will be the day after 72 days if today is Tuesday ?
Tuesday will be repeated after each 7 days so, at 70th day it will also be Tuesday,
so after 72th day it will be Thursday.
On what date of Feb. 2007 did Saturday fall ?
For this find the day of 1.2.2007
1600+400 years has 0 odd days
From 2001 to 2006 there are 1 leap years + 5 ordinary years
So number of odd days = 1*2 + 5*1 = 2 + 5 = 7 = 1 week = 0 odd day
Now from 1.1.2007 to 1.2.2007 number of days = 32 = 4 weeks + 4 odd days = 4 odd days
So, total number of odd days = 4, so 1.2.2007 will be Thursday.
Now Saturday will be on 3.2.2007
2.12.91 is the first Monday. Which is the fourth Tuesday of December 91?
2.12.91 is the first Monday of December 91.
So, 3.12.91 is the first Tuesday of the month.
Clearly, 10.12.91, 17.12.91, 24.12.91 and 31.12.91 are also Tuesdays.
So, 24.12.91 is the fourth Tuesday.
When will Saturday be if the day before yesterday was Wednesday?
Day after Tomorrow
Two days after Today
If day before yesterday was Wednesday, then today is Friday.
Therefore, tomorrow’s will be Saturday.
If Thursday was the day after the day before yesterday five days ago, What is the least number of days ago when Sunday was three days before the day after tomorrow?
Day after the day before yesterday is yesterday.
Now, five days ago, yesterday was Thursday.
So, five days ago, it was Friday.
Therefore today is Wednesday.
Now, three days before the day after tomorrow is yesterday.
Now, it is on Monday that we say Yesterday was Sunday.
The year next to 1990 will have the same calender as that of the year 1990.
The year 1990 has 365 days i.e. 1 odd day, year 1991 has 365 days i.e., odd day, year 1992 has 366 days
i.e., 2 odd days.
Likewise year 1993, 1994, 1995 have 1 odd day each.
The sum of odd days so calculated from year 1990 to 1995
( 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 ) = 7 odd days.
Hence the year 1996 will have the same calender as that of the year 1990.

What day will it be on the 19th day of the month, If the 7th day of a month is three days earlier than Thursday?
The seventh day of the month is three days earlier than Thursday, which is Monday.
So, the fourteenth day is also Monday and thus, the nineteenth day is Saturday.
If every second Saturday and all Sundays are holidays in a 30 days month beginning on Saturday, then how many working days are there in that month?
Since the month begins on Saturday, so 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th days are Sundays.
While 8th and 22nd days are second Saturdays.
Thus, there are 7 holidays in all.
Therefore number of working days = 30 - 7 = 23.
Suppose the first day of the leap year was Friday, then which was the last day of that year?
