Answer : [D]
Explanation :
Explanation :
1976 = (1975 + Period from 1st January 1976 to 22nd February 1976)  
Counting of odd days:  
No. of odd days in 1600 = 0, No. of odd days in 300 years = 3 

75 years = 18 leap years + 57 ordinary years  
= (18 x 2) + 57 = 36 + 57 = 93 odd days  
= 13 weeks + 2 odd days = 2 odd days  
No. of days from 1st January to 22nd February = 31 + 22 = 53 

= 7 weeks + 4 days = 4 odd days  
Total No. of odd days = 0 + 3 + 2 + 4 = 9 days = 2 odd days
