A simple logical interview question was asked to Rahul by the interviewee:
There is exactly one week between Christmas and New Year. Thus a New Year that occurs right after the Christmas, happens to occur on the same day as Christmas. But in 2030, Christmas will occur on Wednesday and New Year will occur on Tuesday.

How is that possible?

Rahul was able to answer the question. Can you?

In 2030, New Year will occur on 1 Jan 2013 and Christmas will occur on 25 Dec 2030. There is not one week but 51+ week’s difference between them. Read the question carefully again.
