Hence, it is important for candidates to be aware of the basic concepts so that it becomes easy to use them and solve the questions. Here are some points to remember:

100 years = 24 Leap years + 76 Normal years

because a leap year occurs in every 4 years

i.e (24 x 2) + (76 x1) odd days

because a Leap year has 2 odd days and a Normal year has 1 odd day. Hence, 100 years will have 124 odd days in total. This can also be written as:

124 odd days = 17 weeks + 5 days and that becomes 5 days.
