Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

Jan. Feb. March April

(31 + 28 + 31 + 1) = 91 days ≡ 0 odd days.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 0) = 0

On 1st April, 2001 it was Sunday.

In April, 2001 Wednesday falls on 4^{th}, 11^{th}, 18^{th} and 25^{th}

17th June, 1998 = (1997 years + Period from 1.1.1998 to 17.6.1998)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 300 years = (5 x 3) ≡ 1

97 years has 24 leap years + 73 ordinary years.

Number of odd days in 97 years ( 24 x 2 + 73) = 121 = 2 odd days.

Jan. Feb. March April May June

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 17) = 168 days

Therefore 168 days = 24 weeks = 0 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 2 + 0) = 3.

Given day is Wednesday.

100 years have 5 odd days

75 years = (18 leap years + 57 ordinary years)

= [(18 x 2) + (57 x 1)]

= 93 (13 weeks + 2 days)

= 2 odd days

1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 7 odd days = 0 odd day

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul

31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 16
