The alphabets are written in reverse order in groups of 4. Also, after each term, one letter (next in order) is omitted. One letter is written in small in each term and it gets shifted one place to the left after each term.

Thus, after 'b', the next omitted term is 'a' in reverse order.

Also, the second letter from end will be in small and rest will be capital.

Thus, missing term = ZYxW

Number of days left in May = 31−21=10

Similarly, odd days from 21st May till 14th November = (10+30+31+31+30+31+14)%7

= 3+2+3+3+2+3+0=16

Now, dividing 16 by 7, remainder = 2

Thus, day on 14th November = Sunday (+2) = Tuesday
