If year 2000’s Gandhi Jayanti was on Tuesday, then on which day is the Christmas day of the next year. (Actual days on dates may vary)

Correct Answer : c ) Thursday

Explanation :

According to question:

2 October 2000 = Tuesday

As 2001 is a non-leap year

⇒ Number of odd days between 2 October 2000 and 2 October 2001 = 365 – (52 * 7) = 1

⇒ 2 October 2001 = Tuesday + 2 = Thursday

Number of days between 2 October 2001 and 25 December 2001 (Christmas day) = 29 + 30 + 25 = 84

⇒Remainder $$({84 \over 7})$$=0

Therefore, there are 0 odd days

Thus, 25 December 2001 (Christmas day) = Thursday + 0 = Thursday

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
