## Answer & Solution

**Option C**

^{th}August, 1947 = (1946 years + Period from 1

^{st}Jan., 1947 to 15th )

Counting of odd days:

1600 years have 0 odd day. 300 years have 1 odd day.

47 years = (11 leap years + 36 ordinary years)

= [(11 x 2) + (36 x 1) ] odd days

= 58 odd days

= 2 odd days

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug

= 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15

= 227 days

= (32 weeks + 3 days)

= 3,

Total number of odd days

= (0 + 1 + 2 + 3) odd days

= 6 odd days.

Hence, the required day was 'Saturday'.
