Q:

# On 24th Nov, 2007 Thursday falls. What day of the week was it on 10th Nov, 2006 ?

 A) Wednesday B) Tuesday C) Friday D) Thursday

Explanation:

The year 2006 is an ordinary year. So, it has 1 odd day.
So, the day on 24th Nov, 2007 will be 1 day beyond the day on 24th Nov, 2006.
But, 24th Nov, 2007 is Thursday.
24 - 10 = 14 days.
Therefore, 2 weeks ago it is same day.
Thus, 10th Nov, 2006 is one day before 10th Nov, 2007 i.e. it is Wednesday.

Q:

What is two weeks from today?

 A) same day B) previous day C) next day D) None

Explanation:

We know that the day repeats every 7 days, 14 days, 21 days,...

So if today is Monday, after 7 days it is again Monday, after 14 days again it is Monday.

Hence, after 2 weeks i.e, 14 days the day repeats and is the same day.

Q:

How old are you if you are born in 1995?

 A) 22 B) 23 C) 24 D) 25

Explanation:

Calculating Age has 2 conditions. Let your Birthday is on January 1st.

1. If the month in which you are born is completed in the present year i.e, your birthday, then

Your Age = Present year - Year you are born

As of now, present year = 2018

i.e, Age = 2018 - 1995 = 23 years.

2. If the month in which you are born is not completed in the present year i.e, your birthday, then

Your Age = Last year - Year you are born

As of now, present year = 2018

i.e, Age = 2017 - 1995 = 22 years.

Q:

The day before yesterday, I was 25 years old, and next year I will turn 28. How is it possible?

On carefully inspecting this question, one can understand that there are two days which are important and these are:

A. My Birthday.

B. The day when I am making this statement.

If you think for a while, you will understand that such statements can be made only around the year’s end. So, if my birthday is on 31 December, then I will be making this statement on 1 January.

I will further explain using the following example:

1. Consider that today is 01 January 2017.

2. Then, the day before yesterday was 30 December 2016 and according to the question I was 25 then.

3. Yesterday was 31 December 2016, which happens to be my birthday too (Woohoo!), and my age increases by one to become 26.

4. I will turn 27 on my birthday this year (31 December 2017).

5. I will turn 28 on my birthday next year (31 December 2018).

Now, if you read the question again, it will make more sense:

The day before yesterday(30 December 2016), I was 25 years old and next year(31 December 2018) I will be 28.

Q:

The calendar for the year 2018 will be the same for the year

 A) 2023 B) 2027 C) 2029 D) 2022

Explanation:

How to find the years which have the same Calendars :

Leap year calendar repeats every 28 years.

Here 28 is distributed as 6 + 11 + 11.

Rules:

a) If given year is at 1st position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+6.

b) If given year is at 2nd position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+11.

c) If given year is at 3rd position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+11.

Now, the given year is 2018

We know that 2016 is a Leap year.

2016    2017    2018    2019  2020

Lp Y      1st     2nd      3rd     Lp Y

Here 2018 is at 2 nd position after the Leap year.

According to rule b) the calendar of 2018 is repeated for the year is 2018 + 11 = 2029.

Q:

What is 90 days from today?

Hints : Today is 20th January 2017, Sunday

 A) 18th April, Friday B) 20th April, Saturday C) 21th April, Sunday D) 19th April, Saturday

Explanation:

Given Today is 20th January 2017, Sunday

In january, we have 31 days

February - 28 days (Non leap year)

March - 31 days

April - 30 days

=> Remaining days => 31 - 20 = 11 in Jan

+ 28 in Feb + 31 in Mar = 11 + 28 + 31 = 70 days

More 20 days to complete 90 days => upto 20th April

Therefore, after 90 days from today i.e, 20th Jan 2017 is 20th Apr 2017.

Now, the day of the week will be

90/7 => Remainder '6'

As the day starts with '0' on sunday

6 => Saturday.

Required day is 20th April, Saturday.
