Expert Answer

Dear student,

There are 365 days in a ordinary year i.e 52 weeks and one day.

Thus each day would occur 52 times in a year.

Now, the probability for the remaining one day to be a wednesday = 1/7

Since it has in total 7(Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs, Fri,Sat,Sun) possible outcomes and 1(wed) favourable outcome.

Similarly for a leap year there are 366 days. Thus 52 weeks and two days.

Thus the probability here would be = 2/7

On the similar try for the second question.

Warm regards,
