Answer – Option A
Explanation –
The year 2004 is a leap year. So, it has 2 odd days.
But, Feb 2004 not included because we are calculating from March 2004 to March 2005. So it has 1 odd day only.
The day on \({6}^{th}\) March, 2005 will be 1 day beyond the day on \({6}^{th}\) March, 2004.
Given that, \({6}^{th}\) March, 2005 is Monday.
\({6}^{th}\) March, 2004 is Sunday (1 day before to \({6}^{th}\) March, 2005).
2. How many days are there in x weeks x days?

3. On \({8}^{th}\) Feb, 2005 it was Tuesday. What was the day of the week on \({8}^{th}\) Feb, 2004?
Answer – Option C
Explanation –
The year 2004 is a leap year. It has 2 odd days.
The day on \({8}^{th}\) Feb, 2004 is 2 days before the day on \({8}^{th}\) Feb, 2005.
Hence, this day is Sunday.

Answer – Option
