Between 1600 and 1900 the number of odd days is —————–1
In 1998 completed years 97and of this Number of leap years are 24 and ordinary years 73
Total number of odd days in 97 years -> (24×2)+(73×1)-> 121 days.
From 1.1.1998 to 17.06.98 the number of odd days are {3+3+2+3+3(17-two completed weeks)]
Thus the total number of odd days are—– 1 + 121 + 14 = 136 -> completed weeks -> 19
and remaining odd days -> 3 ie Wednesday.

What is the smallest number  N can be?
(a) 82653                           (b) 81656             (c) 82656              (d) 80654
Ans: (c)
The divisor 24 is a multiple of 4 and the rule of divisibility for 4 is the last two digits divisible by 4.

where X and Y are the successive changes in percentages.
Applying this we get ->  20 + 20 + 400/100 -> 44%
  1. If ‘a is divided by b’ the result is 3/4 ,If ‘b is divided by c’ the result is 5/6 then the result when ‘a is divided by c’?
(a) 1/8                (b) 7/8                  (c) 5/8                   (d) 3/8
