C) Sunday | D) Thursday |

Explanation:

15 Aug, 1947 = (1946 years + Period from 1.1.1947 to 15.8.1947)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 300 years = 1

46 years = (35 ordinary years + 11 leap years) = (35 x 1 + 11 x 2)= 57 (8 weeks + 1 day) = 1 odd day

Jan. Feb. Mar. Apr. May. Jun. Jul. Aug

( 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15 ) = 227 days = (32 weeks + 3 days) = 3 odd days.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 1 + 3) = 5 odd days.

Hence, as the number of odd days = 5 , given day is Friday.

A) Rs. 169.50 | B) Rs.1700 |

C) Rs. 175.50 | D) Rs. 180 |

Explanation:

Since first second varieties are mixed in equal proportions, so their average price = Rs. = Rs.130.50

So, Now the mixture is formed by mixing two varieties, one at Rs. 130.50 per kg and the other at say Rs. 'x' per kg in the ratio 2 : 2, i.e., 1 : 1. We have to find 'x'.

Cost of 1 kg tea of 1st kind Cost of 1 kg tea of 2nd kind

x-153/22.50 = 1 => x - 153 = 22.50 => x=175.50.

Hence, price of the third variety = Rs.175.50 per kg.
