Question 1: If 29 January 2003 is a Wednesday, then what day of the week will be 26 February 2005?

a) Thursday

b) Saturday

c) Friday

d) Sunday

Solution:

Given, 29 January 2003 is a Wednesday

Number of days between 29 January 2003 and January 29 2004 = 365 days

Number of days between 29 January 2004 and January 29 2005 = 366 days

Number of days between 29 January 2005 and 26 February 2005 = 28 days

Number of days between 29 January 2003 and 26 February 2005 = 365 + 366 + 28 = 759 days

Number of odd days between 29 January 2003 and 26 February 2005 = Remainder of $\frac{759}{7}$ = 3

$\therefore\$The day on 26 February 2005 = Wednesday + 3 = Saturday

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Question 2: What day of the week was 5 February 2008?

a) Thursday

b) Monday

c) Tuesday

d) Wednesday

Solution:

Odd days in year 2007 = 6 + 2 = 8
($\because$ 2004 is the leap year and odd days till 2000 is 0.)
Odd days in 5 February = odd days in January + 5 = 3 + 5 = 8
Total odd days = 8 + 8 = 16
Odd days = 16 = 2 weeks + 2 odd days
So day of the week was Tuesday.
$\therefore$ The correct answer is option C.

Question 3: What day of the week was 31 January 2007?

a) Monday

b) Tuesday

c) Thursday

d) Wednesday

Solution:

Number of odd days in 2006 = 7
($\because$ number of Leap year from 2000 to 2007 = 1(2004))
Odd days in 31 January = 31
Total odd days = (31 + 7) = 38
Odd day = 38/7 = 3 remaining
The day of the week was Wednesday.
$\therefore$ The correct answer is option D.

Question 4: What day of the week was 29 June 2010 ?

a) Sunday

b) Monday

c) Wednesday

d) Tuesday

Solution:

Odd day till 2009 = 7 + 2 + 2 = 11
($\because$ Year 2004 and 2008 are leap year and odd days till 2000 = 0)
Odd days in 29 June = Odd days in (January + February + March + April + May + June) =  3 + 0 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 1 = 12
Total odd days = 11 + 12 = 23
Odd days = 23/7 = 2 remaining
The days of the week was Tuesday.
$\therefore$ The correct answer is option D.

Solution:

Given, 10 November 2018 was Saturday

Number of days between 15 August 2017 and 15 August 2018 = 365 days

Number of days between 15 August 2018 and 10 November 2018 = 16 + 30 + 31 + 10 = 87 days

Number of days between 15 August 2017 and 10 November 2018 = 452 days

Number of odd days between 29 January 2003 and 26 February 2005 = Remainder of $\frac{452}{7}$ = 4

$\therefore\$The day on 15 August 2017 = Saturday – 4 = Tuesday

Solution:

15th August 2013 = (2013 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
