Calendar Tricks of Reasoning Questions for Competitive Exams
Q.1. If it was Wednesday on 2 March, then which day would come on 26 March?
Difference between 2 March to 26 March is (26-2) = 24 days. When 24 is divided by 7, we find 3 as a remainder. So, the third day after Wednesday is Saturday. So, it will be Saturday on 26 March.
Q.2. If it is Friday on 10 March 2003, then which day would come on 25 June, 2003 ?
Difference from 10 March, 2003 to 25 June, 2003 = March+April+May+June = 21+30+31+25=107
Keep in mind ! Only one date from 10 March & 25 June will be accounted, so, for the convenience, we consider 25 June. So, days in March will be (31-10)=21 is written.
Now, we divide the difference obtained by 7, which is :
= 15 & 2 is the remainder.
So, the day on 25 June will be 2nd next day after Friday, which is Sunday.
Here, we can solve this by writing the odd days only ( the remainder found after dividing by 7) as below :
March + April + May +June
0 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 9
So, = 1, remainder = 2
So, the day after 2 days will be Sunday.
Note: Here we have already divided the days of months by 7. The month of 30 days will give the remainder 2 & similarly, for 31 day’s month, we get remainder 3. In the month o March, we have 21 days as 10 days are not be accounted. So, here we’ll get remainder 0. So, for March, we’ve written 0 here. Similarly, we’ll get remainder 4 for June as we’ve to consider 25 days in June.
The remainders found for each month in normal case are given below :
January – 3
February – 0,1
March – 3
April – 2
May – 3
June – 2
July – 3
August – 3
September – 2
October – 3
November – 2
December – 3
We can easily & quickly solve the problems if we remember the above table.
Q.3. If it is Wednesday on 17 March, 2005, then which day would come on 12 September, 2005?
March+April+May+June+July+Aug+September = 0+2+3+2+3+3+5 = 18.
The remainder will be 4 when 18 is divided by 7.
So, the next 4th day from Wednesday is Sunday.
Note- In the given problem, 17 days of March are not considered, So the remaining days will be 31-17=14. Now, the remainder is 0 when 14 is divided by 7. So, we’ve written 0 for March. Similarly, we’ve to consider only 12 days in September. The remainder will be 5 when 12 is divided by 7, so we’ve written 5 for September.
Q.4. Which day would come on 5 July, 1999 if it was Sunday on 20 November, 1999?
Then, Remainder = 5.
Here, we have to find the day before given by, so the day before 5 days of Sunday was Tuesday.
We can count (7-5) = 2 next days for our convenience. The 2nd next day of Sunday will be Tuesday.
Note : Here we have written 5 for July as we have to consider (31-5) = 26 & we find remainder 5 when 26 is divided by 7. Similarly, we find 6 as a remainder for November 20 days divided by 7. So, we’ve written 6 for November.
Q.5. If it is Friday on 25 July, 2007; then which was the day on 2 February, 2007?
5+3+2+3+2+4 = 19
When 19 is divided by 7, we get 2 full cycles (weeks) & 5 as remainder. So 5 days back from Friday OR 2 days after Friday would be Sunday. 1
When there is a difference of so many years between given dates, then
* If there is a difference of 1 year between normal years, then there will be increase or decrease of 1 day.

Q.6. If it is Friday on 12 April, 2002, then which day would come on 12 April, 2003 ?
