Solution

## The correct option is B 17A non-leap year has 365 daysA year has 52 weeks. Hence there will be 52 Sundays for sure.52 weeks = 52 x 7 = 364 days .365– 364 = 1 day extra.In a non-leap year there will be 52 Sundays and 1 day will be left.This 1 day can be Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, friday , Saturday, Sunday.Of these total 7 outcomes, the favourable outcomes are 1.Hence the probability of getting 53 sundays = 1 / 7.
