Q:

# What was the day of the week on 28th May, 2006?

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

Answer:   A) Sunday

Explanation:

28 May, 2006 = (2005 years + Period from 1.1.2006 to 28.5.2006)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

5 years = (4 ordinary years + 1 leap year) = (4 x 1 + 1 x 2) 6 odd days

(31[jan] + 28 [Feb]+ 31[Mar] + 30[April] + 28[May] ) = 148 days

148 days = (21 weeks + 1 day) 1 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 6 + 1) = 7 0 odd day.

Given day is Sunday

Q:

How many seconds in 10 years?

 A) 31523500 sec B) 315360000 sec C) 315423000 sec D) 315354000 sec

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 315360000 sec

Explanation:

We know that,

1 year = 365 days

1 day = 24 hours

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds.

Then, 1 year = 365 x 24 x 60 x 60 seconds.

= 8760 x 3600

1 year = 31536000 seconds.

Hence, 10 years = 31536000 x 10 = 315360000 seconds.

Q:

How old are you if you are born in 1995?

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

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 23

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?

Answer

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

Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 2029

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.
