So jake buys 4 items per day and has bought a total of 1008 items which means that he has shopped for 1008/4= 252 days.
now he can only buy the things on 5 days (mon to fri)
so then 6th day is Monday again 7th day is Tuesday again and so on
so if we divide the no of days he shopped by 5, then the remainder will give us the day that is going on and of the remainder is 0 then its Friday

so 252/5 gives remainder 2
which means its Tuesday
hence option 2 is correct
