**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

15^{th} August, 2021 = (2020 years + Period 1.1.2021 to 15.8.2021)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

20 years = (5 leap years + 15 ordinary years) = (5 x 2 + 15 x 1) = 25 = 4 odd days

Jan. Feb. March April May June July Aug.

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15) = 227 days

227 days = (32 weeks + 3 days) = 3 odd days

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 7 + 3) = 7 = 0 odd days

Given day is Sunday.

**2) Answer (C)**

Year 2017 was normal year,

Number of days in 2017 = 365

So, 52 weeks and one odd day

1st January 2017 was Sunday means 30th December 2016 is Saturday

So, 31st December 2017 would be Sunday

**3) Answer (B)**

Year 2016 was a leap year

Therefore, number of days in 2016 = 366 days = 52 weeks + 2 odd days

Now 1st january 2016 was Friday so, 30th december 2016 was also Friday

Hence, 31th december 2016 was Saturday.

**4) Answer (A)**

15th August 2013 = (2009 years + period between 1-1-2013 to 15-8-2013)

odd days in 2000 = 0

in remaining 13 years = (3 leap years + 9 normal years) = (3 * 2 + 9 * 1) = 15 – 14 = 1 odd days

Total number of days in period between 1-1-2013 to 15-8-2013 = 227 days = 32 weeks + 3 days = 3 odd days

Total number of odd days = (1 + 3) = 4 days

Hence, given day is thrusday (0 odd day means sunday, 1 odd day means mon and so on )

**5) Answer (C)**

26 January 2012 = (2011 years + period between 1-1-2012 to 26-01-2012)

odd days in 2000 = 0

in remaining 11 years = (2 leap years + 9 normal years) = (2 * 2 + 9 * 1) = 13 – 14 = 6 odd days

Total number of days in period between 1-1-2012 to 26-01-2012 = 26 days = 3 weeks + 5 days = 5 odd days

Total number of odd days = (6 + 5) = 11 – 7 = 4 days

Hence, given day is Thursday (0 odd day means sunday, 1 odd day means mon and so on).

**6) Answer (B)**

**7) Answer (A)**

**8) Answer (D)**

**9) Answer (B)**

The total angle in a clock is 360°.

The minute hand covers this 360° in 60 minutes. Thus ,for every minute it covers 6°.

The hour hand covers this 360° in 12 hour. Thus ,for every hour it covers 30°.

So, in 8 hour ,the hour hand will cover $8\times30°=240°.$

So, the difference between hour hand and minute hand at 8 p.m will be = $\left(360°-240°\right)=120°.$

So, option B is correct .

**10) Answer (D)**

AM : 12:00, 1:05, 2:11, 3:16,4:22, 5:27, 6:33, 7:38, 8:44, 9:49, 10:55.

PM: 12:00, 1:05, 2:11, 3:16, 4:22, 5:27, 6:33, 7:38, 8:44, 9:49, 10:55.

So, both the hands coincide with each other for 22 times in a day.

Now,

For 1 day = 22 times.

For 1 week = 22 * 7

= > 154 times.

**11) Answer (B)**

Praneet started his journey at 2:45:46 pm

Anit started 58 minutes 40 secs later

so the time would be 2:45:46 + 0:58:40 = 3:44:26 pm (since 60 sec is 1 minute and 60 minute = 1 hour)

Praneet reaches at 4:55:57 pm

and Anit reaches 0:50:29 after him

so the reaching time would be 4:55:57+0:50:29 = 5:46:26 pm

now the time taken by Anit is 5:46:26 – 3:44:26 = 2:02:00

Hence the time taken by Anit is 2 hours and 2 mins

**12) Answer (B)**

The hour hand of a clock moves by 30 deg when the minute had moved through 360 deg. Hence if the hour hand moves 18 deg, then the minute hand moves by $\frac{360\times18}{30}$ = 216 deg

**13) Answer (B)**

1st december 2018 is saturday so, 5 december is a wednesday **(How are u able to tell that 1st dec 2018 is saturday. It has to be explained)**

just 7 as many times as it not exceeding the value 31 beacause december is a 31 days month

so,

5, 12, 19 and 26 of December are the dates on which it will be Wednesdays.

**14) Answer (A)**

There are 7 years between the two except two of them are leap years.

In a normal year, there are 365 days. 365 when divided by 7 leaves a reminder of 1. So, 1 July of a year and 1 July of the previous year are one weekday apart. If it is a leap year, 1 July of a year and 1 July of a previous year are separated by 2 weekdays. So, If July 1, 1977 was a Friday, 1st july 1976 is a Thursday and 1st july 1975-tuesday 1st july 1974-monday 1st july 1973-sunday 1st july 1972-saturday 1st july 1971-thrusday 1st july 1970- wednesday

**15) Answer (B)**

Given day after tomorrow is Friday. Therefore day (Friday) before yesterday should be Wednesday. It means that Sita started her journey on Wednesday & will reach Mumbai on Thursday. Thursday is tomorrow in this conversation.
