If 10th August, 2001 was Tuesday, which day was fall on 25th September, 2002 ?

A)

Thursday


B)

Wednesday


C)

Saturday


D)

Sunday



Correct Answer :

Sunday

Because 2001 is an ordinary year. So, it has 1 odd day.

Hence, the day on 10th August, 2002 will be Wednesday (Tuesday + 1 odd day)

Remaining days until 25th September, 2002
August(10 to 31) =21 days
September = 25 days
Total days = 46

Because the day repeats after 7 days.
Therefore, the day on 25th September, 2002 will be
=> 46 = (6*7) + 4
=> Wednesday + 4
=> Sunday

A clock buzzes 1 time at 1 O’clock, 2 times at 2 O’clock, 3 times at 3 O’clock and so on. What will be the total number of buzzes by the clock in a day?

A)
150

B)
156

C)
100

as (1 + 2 + 3 +…. + n) =n(n+1)/2
So total number of buzzes = (12*(1+12)/2) + (12*(1+12)/2) = 78+78 =156
