Soln.
Ans: a

Count the days from months between February 1 and March 1 like this: February days = 28; So total days = 28. Since 28 = 4 X 7 + 0, so excess days are 0. So we can count the day to Friday + 0 = Friday.

Vaibhav is 77 + 96 = 173 weeks and 7 + 5 = 12 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 12 days alone. Since 12 = 1 X 7 + 5, the excess days are 5. So we can count the day to Wednesday + 5 = Monday.
