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.

The last event took place at 12::15 PM - 45 minutes, i.e., at 11::30 AM, which was 19 minutes earlier from now. So the time now is 11::30 AM + 19 mins = 11::49 AM.

### Question 3

Vaibhav is 75 weeks and 9 days older than me, whereas Gurnam is 32 weeks and 5 days older than Vaibhav. If Gurnam was born on a Saturday, on which day of the week was I born?

Saturday.

B

Tuesday.

C

Friday.

D

Wednesday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Gurnam is 75 + 32 = 107 weeks and 9 + 5 = 14 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 14 days alone. Since 14 = 2 X 7 + 0, the excess days are 0. So we can count the day to Saturday + 0 = Saturday.
