Expert Answer:

Number of days in a non-leap year = 365 = 53 weeks and 1 day
Thus, the probability is to be calculated for the remaining 1 day.
That one day can be {Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurd, Fri, Sat}
 
Total number of outcomes = 7
Number of facourable outcome = 1
Thus, required probability = 1/7
