### Question 19

Sunita is 25 weeks and 9 days older than me, whereas Rakesh is 71 weeks and 7 days older than Sunita. If Rakesh was born on a Tuesday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Friday.

B

Sunday.

C

Tuesday.

D

Thursday.

Soln.
Ans: D

Rakesh is 25 + 71 = 96 weeks and 9 + 7 = 16 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 16 days alone. Since 16 = 2 X 7 + 2, the excess days are 2. So we can count the day to Tuesday + 2 = Thursday.
