Q1) India got independence on August 15, 1947. What was the day of the week?

A. Sunday

B. Friday

C. Monday

D. Thursday

Answer : Option B

Explanation: Number of odd days in the first 1600 years = 0 odd day

Number of odd days in the next 300 years = 1 odd day

Now, 46 years had 11 leap years and 35 ordinary years.

The number of odd days in 46 years= (2×11) +(1×35) =22+35=57=8weeks and 1 odd day.

Now, we shall calculate the number of odd days in 1947 till 15 August.

Month completed January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August15 days overall 227 days

227 days=32 weeks and 3 odd days.

So, the total number of odd days till 15 August 1947=0+1+1+3=5.

On counting five days from Monday, we get Friday.

Therefore, 15 August 1947 was a Friday.
