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.**
