Correct Answer - Option 2 : Monday

Odd days:
A leap year has 366 days and a non-leap year has 365 days.

Leap year = 366 days or 52 weeks and 2 days. So, here the number of odd days are 2.

Non - Leap year = 365 days or 52 weeks and 1 day. So, here the number of odd days is 1.

Number of odd days in the following years

2017

 8th February 2020  was Saturday

Code for Saturday is 6 and the number of odd days in all the years combined is 5. So, 6 - 5 = 1

1 is the code for Monday.

Hence, 1st February 2016 was Monday.
