Q:

Which two months in a year have the same calendar?

A) October, December B) April, November
C) June, October D) April, July
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) April, July

Explanation:

If the period between the two months is divisible by 7, then that two months will have the same calender .

Now,

(b). Apr. + May + June + July + Aug. + Sep. + Oct. = 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 +30 + 31 = 213 (not divisible by 7)

(c). June + July + Aug. + Sep. = 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 = 122 (not divisible by 7)

(d). Apr. + May + June = 30 + 31 + 30 = 91 (divisible by 7)

 

Hence, April and July months will have the same calendar.

Q:

How many seconds in 10 years?

A) 31523500 sec B) 315360000 sec
C) 315423000 sec D) 315354000 sec
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 315360000 sec

Explanation:

We know that,

1 year = 365 days

1 day = 24 hours

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds.

 

Then, 1 year = 365 x 24 x 60 x 60 seconds.

= 8760 x 3600

1 year = 31536000 seconds.

 

Hence, 10 years = 31536000 x 10 = 315360000 seconds.

Q:

How old are you if you are born in 1995?

A) 22 B) 23
C) 24 D) 25
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 23

Explanation:

Calculating Age has 2 conditions. Let your Birthday is on January 1st.

1. If the month in which you are born is completed in the present year i.e, your birthday, then

Your Age = Present year - Year you are born 

As of now, present year = 2018

i.e, Age = 2018 - 1995 = 23 years.

 

2. If the month in which you are born is not completed in the present year i.e, your birthday, then

Your Age = Last year - Year you are born

As of now, present year = 2018

i.e, Age = 2017 - 1995 = 22 years.

Q:

The day before yesterday, I was 25 years old, and next year I will turn 28. How is it possible?

Answer

On carefully inspecting this question, one can understand that there are two days which are important and these are:


A. My Birthday.


B. The day when I am making this statement.


If you think for a while, you will understand that such statements can be made only around the year’s end. So, if my birthday is on 31 December, then I will be making this statement on 1 January.


I will further explain using the following example:


1. Consider that today is 01 January 2017.


2. Then, the day before yesterday was 30 December 2016 and according to the question I was 25 then.


3. Yesterday was 31 December 2016, which happens to be my birthday too (Woohoo!), and my age increases by one to become 26.


4. I will turn 27 on my birthday this year (31 December 2017).


5. I will turn 28 on my birthday next year (31 December 2018).


Now, if you read the question again, it will make more sense:


 


The day before yesterday(30 December 2016), I was 25 years old and next year(31 December 2018) I will be 28.

Q:

The calendar for the year 2018 will be the same for the year

A) 2023 B) 2027
C) 2029 D) 2022
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 2029

Explanation:

How to find the years which have the same Calendars :

 

Leap year calendar repeats every 28 years.


Here 28 is distributed as 6 + 11 + 11.

 

Rules:

a) If given year is at 1st position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+6.

b) If given year is at 2nd position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+11.

c) If given year is at 3rd position after Leap year then next repeated calendar year is Givenyear+11.

 

Now, the given year is 2018

We know that 2016 is a Leap year.

2016    2017    2018    2019  2020

Lp Y      1st     2nd      3rd     Lp Y

 

Here 2018 is at 2 nd position after the Leap year.

According to rule b) the calendar of 2018 is repeated for the year is 2018 + 11 = 2029.
