Leap day, 29th February, in 2004 fell on a Sunday. On what day of the week will the leap day in 2012 fall?
- All Questions
Step by Step Explanation:
- In a normal year of 365 days we have 52 weeks and 1 day.
In a leap year of 366 days we have 52 weeks and 2 days.
So in a normal year, days shift by 1, while in a regular year days shift by 2.
- Now from 2004 to 2012, there will be 2 leap years(2008, 2012, ) and 4 regular years.
Hence total shift = 2 × 2 + 6 = 10 days = 1 weeks and 3 days.
So total shift of days = 3
Sunday + 3 days = Wednesday
- Therefore on Wednesday of the week will the leap day in 2012 fall.
