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) 2500 | B) 2700 |

C) 2900 | D) 3100 |

Explanation:

Total number of votes = 7500

Given that 20% of Percentage votes were invalid

=> Valid votes = 80%

Total valid votes = 7500*(80/100)

1st candidate got 55% of the total valid votes.

Hence the 2nd candidate should have got 45% of the total valid votes

=> Valid votes that 2nd candidate got = total valid votes x (45/100)

7500*(80/100)*(45/100) = 2700

A) 48 | B) 50 |

C) 58 | D) 60 |

Explanation:

Take a Look at this series :

${2}^{3}$ - ${2}^{2}$ = 8 - 4 = 4

${3}^{3}$ - ${3}^{2}$ = 27 - 9 = 18

${4}^{3}$ - ${4}^{2}$ = 64 - 16 = 48

${5}^{3}$ - ${5}^{2}$ = 125 - 25 = 100

${6}^{3}$ - ${6}^{2}$ = 216 - 36 = 180

${7}^{3}$ - ${7}^{2}$ = 343 - 49 = 294

${8}^{3}$ - ${8}^{2}$ = 512 - 64 = 448
