Correct Answer - Option 3 : Friday

The logic followed here is:

Given: 11th day of the month is Saturday and the total number of days is 31.

Previously Saturday would have been failing on the date:

11th – 7 = 4th

The day before Saturday is

1. Friday

2. Thursday

3. Wednesday

Friday is 3rd day of the month.

This means next Friday will fail on the dates:

3rd + 7 = 10th

Next

10th + 7 = 17th.

Next

17th + 7 = 24th

Next

24th + 7 = 31th

Thus we can see there are 5 Friday (3, 10, 17, 24, 31).

Hence, the correct answer is “Friday”.
