    Explanation (2):

    13th Jan 1821 – 31st Dec 1821 = 2 odd days

    1822 – 1893 = 3 odd days

    1st Jan 1894 – 14th Feb 1894 = 3 odd days

    Total odd days = 8 = 1 odd day

    = Tuesday (as reference is Tuesday)

    Explanation (3):

    22nd Feb 2024 – 31st Dec. 2024 = 6 odd days

    2025 – 2053 = 1 odd day

    1st Jan 2054 – 19th Nov. 2054 = 1 odd day

    Total odd days = 8 = 1 odd day

    = Saturday (as reference is Saturday).

    Explanation (4):

    4n + 1

    4n

    Tuesday

    Sunday

    Explanation (5):

    100th year is not a leap year. So 24 February’s has 29 days.

    Explanation (6):

    100 years contain 5 odd days.

    Last day of 1st century is Friday.

    200 years contain (5 x 2)   3 odd days.

    Last day of 2nd century is Wednesday.

    300 years contain (5 x 3) = 15   1 odd day.

    Last day of 3rd century is Monday.

    400 years contain 0 odd day.

    Last day of 4th century is Sunday.

    This cycle is repeated.

    Last day of a century cannot be Tuesday or Thursday or Saturday.

    Explanation (7):

    The year 2004 is a leap year. It has 2 odd days.

    The day on 10th Feb, 2004 is 2 days before the day on 10th Feb, 2005.

    Hence, this day is Tuesday.

    Explanation (8):

    We shall find the day on 1st April, 2001.

    1st April, 2001 = (2000 years + Period from 1.1.2001 to 1.4.2001)

    Odd days in 1600 years = 0

    Odd days in 400 years = 0

    Jan. Feb. March April

    (31 + 28 + 31 + 1) = 91 days   0 odd days.

    Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 0) = 0

    On 1st April, 2001 it was Sunday.

    In April, 2001 Wednesday falls on 3th, 10th, 17th and 24th.

    Explanation (9):

    28 May, 2006 = (2005 years + Period from 1.1.2006 to 28.5.2006)

    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

    Jan.  Feb.   March    April    May

    (31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 28) = 148 days

    148 days = (21 weeks + 1 day)   1 odd day.

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

    Given day is Friday.

    Explanation (10):

    For this find the day of 1.2.2007

    1600 + 400 years has 0 odd days

    From 2001 to 2006 there are 1 leap year + 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 Friday will be on 2.2.2007.
