### Question 2

Gurnam is 76 weeks and 10 days older than me, whereas Sham is 55 weeks and 13 days older than Gurnam. If Sham was born on a Tuesday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Thursday.

B

Sunday.

C

Tuesday.

D

Saturday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Sham is 76 + 55 = 131 weeks and 10 + 13 = 23 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 23 days alone. Since 23 = 3 X 7 + 2, the excess days are 2. So we can count the day to Tuesday + 2 = Thursday.
