Q:

What was the day of the week on 17th June, 1998 ?

A) Monday B) Tuesday
C) Wednesday D) Friday
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Wednesday

Explanation:

17th June, 1998 = (1997 years + Period from 1.1.1998 to 17.6.1998)
Odd days in 1600 years = 0
Odd days in 300 years = 1
97 years has 24 leap years + 73 ordinary years.
Number of odd days in 97 years ( 24 x 2 + 73) = 121 = 2 odd days.
Jan. Feb. March. April. May. June.
(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 17) = 168 days
168 days = 24 weeks = 0 odd day.
Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 2 + 0) = 3.

Q:

Every year before the festive season, a brand store increases the price of the product by 42% and then introduce two successive discount of 10% and 11% respectively. What is percentage loss and percentage gain ?

A) 3.25% loss B) 13.742% loss
C) 3.25% gain D) 13.742% gain
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 13.742% gain

Explanation:

Let CP = 100,
42 % increase => SP = 142
10 % discount in SP => ((142 x 10)/100) = 14.2
So 1st SP = (142 - 14.2) = 127.8, again 12 % discount in 1st SP ((127.8 x 11)/100) = 14.058
2nd SP = (127.8 - 14.058) = 113.742,
So finally CP = 100, SP = 113.742, => gain = 13.742%.
