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.

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 yearÂ 1976Â is a leap year. Similarly, 1980, 1984 are two leap year. Hence,Â 13thÂ JanuaryÂ 1986 will be Monday.

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!
