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.
