If 6^{th} March, 2005 is Monday, what was the day of the week on 6^{th} March, 2004?
Answer: Option
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 6^{th} March, 2005 will be 1 day beyond the day on 6^{th} March, 2004.
Given that, 6^{th} March, 2005 is Monday.
6^{th} March, 2004 is Sunday (1 day before to 6^{th} March, 2005).

Saturday is the correct answer.
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.

It should be a Saturday.
= (D+M+Y+LP)/7.
= (6+3+104+26)/7,
= 139/7.
= 6 that is 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.
Monday2
Read question carefully,
If it is written in question that 2000 is not a leap year,
Then we need to assume it.
Hope it will help you.

This is an easy way to solve that all problems:
***********************************************
It is used to solve all problems. I have given below.
2004>>>is a leap year 366days ,feb291 odd day
100 years>>> 5odd day.
200years>>>3 odd day.
300 years>>> 1odd day.
400 years>>> 0 odd day.
Month of total 31 days means>>>3 odd day.
Month of total 30 days means>>>2odd day.
Month of total 28 days means>>>0 odd day.
we go to solve that problem>>>>>>
********************************************************************
Solution:
6th march 2004
>>>>we seperated to add year.
1. 1600+400+3yr+(jan+feb)+6days.

400=0,4*400=1600,3yr we check how many leap year& ordinary year 3/4=not divisible So take 3 are odd.
2.0+0+3(1odd)+(3+0)+6.
3.14 /7.
4.2 weeks 0 odd day.
5.we know 0 odd day is sunday.
So the answer is SUNDAY.

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.
