### Question 4

Sunita is 14 weeks and 11 days older than me, whereas Kirat is 17 weeks and 14 days older than Sunita. If Kirat was born on a Wednesday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Sunday.

B

Thursday.

C

Friday.

D

Tuesday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Kirat is 14 + 17 = 31 weeks and 11 + 14 = 25 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 25 days alone. Since 25 = 3 X 7 + 4, the excess days are 4. So we can count the day to Wednesday + 4 = Sunday.

13::09.

14::10.

Soln.
Ans: a

Minutes from 7::29 A.M. to 8::00 A.M. are 60 - 29 = 31. Minutes from 8::00 A.M. to 12::00 noon are 60 X 4 = 240 mins. Minutes from 12::00 noon to 8::38 P.M. are 60 x 8 = 480 + 38 = 518 mins. So total minutes are 31 + 240 + 518 = 789 minutes, which are equal to 60 X 13 + 9 Thus, hours are = 13, and minutes = 9 This Blog Post/Article "Clocks and Calendars Quiz Set 32" by Parveen (Hoven) is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
