Bcz every year the same date we increase +1 and if it is leap year we increase +2 then finally the answer is monday

Kunal Vats answered Sep 18, 2019
2 years(2 days)+ 1 leap year have(2days) = 4 odd days.
so, 1976- 1979= 4 odd days.
1979 - 1982= 4odd days.
1982 -1985= 4 odd days.
1985 - 1986= 1 odd day.
total odd days = 4+4+4+1 = 13/7= 6 odd days.
=6 odd days. Birthday = Tuesday +6days = Monday.

As year 1976 is a leap year. Similarly, 1980, 1984 are two leap year. Hence, 13th January 1986 will be Monday.

Because, the date it falls is one day behind next year.

Option D is the answer

King Soni answered Aug 27, 2020
Saturday or sunday

The answer is D because the day increases by +1 every year and +2 for leap year and in between 1976 and 1986 it contains two leap years so we will add +1 for every year and extra +2 for leap year. so START adding days in Tuesday for +12 days so the answer is Monday!
