## Aptitude Calendar Test Paper 26) Which of the following years is not a leap year? - 800
- 700

- 2000
The Correct answer; option (B)
A century divisible by 400 is a leap year. The years 800, 1600 and 2000 are divisible by 400, so they are leap years. The year 700 is not divisible by 400, so it is not a leap year. 7) How many days are there in y weeks y days? - 8y
- 8y
^{2} - 16y
- 21y
The Correct answer; option (A)
There are 7 days in a week, so y weeks will contain 7y days. ∴The required number of days = 7y + y days = 8y days 8) The day on 5 - 5
^{th}July - 5
^{th}August - 5
^{th}June - 5
^{th}October
The Correct answer; option (A)
April & July for all years have the same calendar. So, a day on any date of April will be the same day on the corresponding date in July. ∴The same day will fall on 5th July of the same year. 9) It was Saturday on January 1, 2005. Find the day of the week on January 1, 2010. - Tuesday
- Friday
- Wednesday
- Sunday
The Correct answer; option (B)
On December 31, 2004, it was Friday. Number of odd days from the year 2005 to the year 2009 = 1+1+1+2(leap year) +1 = 6 odd days ∴On December 31, 2009, it was Thursday, so on January 1, 2010, it was Friday. 10) If it was Wednesday on March 1, 2006, which day was it on March 1, 2002? - Tuesday
- Friday
- Monday
- Sunday
The Correct answer; option (B)
Total number of odd days between the years 2002 and 2006 = (2006 - 2002) + 1 = 5 odd days. The year 2004 is a leap year, it has two odd days. So, one extra odd day is added. So, if it was Wednesday on March 1, 2006, it would be (Wednesday - 5) Friday on March 1, 2002. |
