24. January 12,
1980 was Saturday, what day was January 12, 1979:

(A) Saturday (B) Friday

(C) Sunday (D) Thursday

Answer: B

**Explanation:**

1 ordinary year = 365 days = (52 weeks + 1 day)

Hence number of odd days in 1 ordinary year = 1.

1 leap year = 366 days = (52 weeks + 2 days)

Hence number of odd days in 1 leap year= 2.

The year 1979 is an ordinary year, it has 1 odd day. So, the day on 12

^{th}January 1980 is one day beyond the day on 12^{th}January, 1979. Here, January 12, 1980 was Saturday. So January 12, 1979 was Friday.
