A)

Thursday


B)

Wednesday


C)

Saturday


D)

Sunday



Correct Answer :

Sunday

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

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

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
