Eliminate all the days of the week except for one, and to be forthright about it, this day is NOT the day after Sunday or the day before Wednesday. It can't be that Saturday is tomorrow, nor can it be that Saturday was yesterday. It most certainly couldn't be two days before yesterday, and while we're at it, let's eliminate Thursday.

What day is it?

The answer is "SATURDAY".
Its not the day after Sunday - So , Monday is eliminated.
Not the day before Wednes - So, Tuesday is eliminated,
Not that Sat is tomorrow - So, Friday is eliminated
Not that Saturday was yest - So, Sunday is eliminated.
And from the question , - Lets eliminate Thursday --- So , thursday is eliminated.
Remaining - Wednesday and Saturday.
From the clue in the question , ( it couldnt be 2 days before yesterday )
So, Wednesday falls in the place 2 days before yesterday ( i.e 2 days before Friday).
Hence, answer is Saturday

If I said that in three days' time it would be a Thursday, I am sure that most of you would have no difficulty telling me that today was a Monday.

Try this one then. Yesterday was two days before Monday. What day is it today? Yes, you're right again. It's Sunday. Do you get the idea?

Now let's tackle a similar question from The National Mathematics Contest (1991) Paper:
