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
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Wednesday

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.
