What do we call the months that the Romans called Quintilis and Sextilis?

0 votes
AJuly and August
BJune and July
CAugust and September
DSeptember and October

Correct Option: 1  

The names referred to the fact that the months were originally the fifth and sixth months of the Roman year when it was a 10 month year beginning in March, although over the centuries the calendar changed, and became a 12 month year. When Julius Caesar and his successor Augustus substantially revised the calendar in the first century BCE Quintilis and Sextilis were renamed in their honour.
