A

Friday.

B

Sunday.

C

Tuesday.

D

Saturday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Count the days from months between February 3 and June 12 like this: February days = 28;March days = 31;April days = 30;May days = 31;Add 12 days of June. Subtract 3 days of February. So total days = 129. Since 129 = 18 X 7 + 3, so excess days are 3. So we can count the day to Tuesday + 3 = Friday.

Saturday.

C

Friday.

D

Thursday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Venkat is 50 + 44 = 94 weeks and 9 + 9 = 18 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 18 days alone. Since 18 = 2 X 7 + 4, the excess days are 4. So we can count the day to Wednesday + 4 = Sunday.
