Answer »Answer: (b)
1977 is an ordinary year.
We know that the calendar of an ordinary year repeats after 6 yrs or 11 yrs.

1979  1 
1980  2 
1981  1

1983  1 
1984  2 
1985  1 
1986  1 
1987  1 
1988  2 
From the above table, Number of odd days from 18.09.1977 to 18.09.1983 = 7,
i.e., 0 odd days
It means that in 1983, 18th September would fall on Sunday.
From the above table, a number of odd days from 18.09.1977 to 18.09.1988 = 14
i.e., 0 odd days.
Now, it is clear that 2 marriage anniversaries would fall on Sunday in the next 15 yr.

a) 5^{th} Friday

c) 5^{th} Wednesday
d) 5^{th} Thursday
e) None of these
Answer »Answer: (a)
Number of days left in the month after 16th = 31  16 = 15
Number of odd days = 15/7 = 2 weeks + 1 odd day
Therefore, Required day = Thursday + 1 odd day = Friday
As, 16th of the month is third Thursday, the day which is two weeks after this day is fifth Thursday.
So, one day after 5th Thursday is 5th Friday.
