If 6th March, 2005 is Monday, what was the day of the week on 6th March, 2004?
Sunday
Saturday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Explanation:

The year 2004 is a leap year. So, it has 2 odd days.

But, Feb 2004 not included because we are calculating from March 2004 to March 2005. So it has 1 odd day only.

The day on 6th March, 2005 will be 1 day beyond the day on 6th March, 2004.

Given that, 6th March, 2005 is Monday.

6th March, 2004 is Sunday (1 day before to 6th March, 2005).

The Correct answer is Sunday because this is calculate only 2005 march - 2004 march not included February.

For example; if the year consider leap year the February month 29 day.
But if the year consider non leap year the February month 28 days only.

Therefore 2005 is non leap year and this contains only 1 odd day.
But 2004 is leap year therefore this year contains 2 odd day but February month not included therefore this month same 1 odd days i.e Monday - 1= Sunday.

The year 2004 was a leap year

2000years correspond to 0odd days.
3years have 3odd days.

From first Jan to 6th march 2004: there are 66 days which implies 3odd days.

Total odd days is 6 days.

Therefore, 6th March 2004 was a Saturday even the calendar shows.

Yes, the correct answer is Saturday.

Assume that, if 6th March 2004 is Saturday then only 6th March 2005 will be Monday. 2004 is a leap year so it adds 2 more days.

It should be a Saturday.
= (D+M+Y+LP)/7.
= (6+3+104+26)/7,
= 139/7.
= 6 that is Saturday.

@All.

Note : Their is "if" Written in question,
Means we need to assume that in
6th march, 2005 is Monday.

Points to remember:-
1)

5th march, 2004 --- 6th march 2005 is
Equivalent to 1 year.
Means starting day and ending day is
Same for basic year.
Thus;

5th march 2004=6th march 2005= Monday.
For basic year;
6th march 2004 = Monday -1= Sunday.
Here, 1 means one day back.

2) For leap year.
Monday-2

If it is written in question that 2000 is not a leap year,
Then we need to assume it.
