### Question 20

Dev is 63 weeks and 11 days older than me, whereas John is 59 weeks and 5 days older than Dev. If John was born on a Friday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Tuesday.

B

Wednesday.

C

Sunday.

D

Saturday.

Soln.
Ans: C

John is 63 + 59 = 122 weeks and 11 + 5 = 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 Friday + 2 = Sunday.
