The statement above says "If only yesterday (Sunday) was tomorrow, Today (Monday) would have been Saturday", so, if it will be Sunday tomorrow, Today would be Saturday. So, We now know that tomorrow is Sunday. Then with the statement "If only yesterday (Sunday) was tomorrow", we can saythat: Yesterday = Tomorrow Yesterday = Sunday So, if yesterday was Sunday, Today is Monday. Therefore, it was Monday when the teacher made that statement.

Nice one

answer is friday
Explanation:
Consider the statement " If yesterday was tomorrow, today would be sunday" means that the teacher rearranged time to move ahead with two days i.e the time between yesterday and tomorrow of a particular day is two days apart.
Now since the assumed "today" is sunday it means that when we subtract two days from the assumed today (sunday) from the original statement, we would get the actual today which means sunday minus two days is friday.

Answer is therefore FRIDAY

The confusion lies in the statement "If only YESTERDAY was TOMORROW". The answer to this particular statement is Friday.
"If only TOMORROW was YESTERDAY". The answer to this one is Tuesday.
I see a lot of people mixing both up. The confusion is in the Grammar.

Explantion: if yesterday (Thursday) was tomorrow (Saturday), today would have been Sunday, because on Sunday, yesterday is always Saturday.

The teacher made the statement on Tuesday



In other news


April 1st is named FOOL'S DAY, after Steve April. He was born on 1st April 1579. He did 105 businesses in his lifetime. He lost all his father's assets, and so everyone started calling him father of the fools.

At 19, he married a 61-year-old woman who divorced him after a year because of his foolishness. He used to read all kinds of fake stories like you are doing now.

Happy April Fool's day

THE ORIGIN OF APRIL FOOLS' DAY:
Here is an interesting historical fact. Just have a look at the calendar for the month of September, 1752. Go to Google and type " September 1752 calendar" and see for yourself. You will notice 11 days(3rd-13th) are simply missing from the month.Here's the explanation: This was the month during which England shifted from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar. A Julian year was 11 days longer than a Gregorian year. So, the King of England ordered 11 days to be wiped off the face of that particular month. So, the workers worked for 11 days less that month but got paid for the whole month. That's how the idea of "paid leave" came into existence.In the Roman Julian Calendar, April used to be the first month of the year, but the Gregorian Calendar observed January as the first month. Even after shifting to the Gregorian Calendar, many people refused to give up old traditions and continued celebrating 1st April as the New Year's Day. When simple orders didn't work, the King finally issued a royal dictum which stated that those who celebrated 1st April as the New Year's Day would be labelled as fools. From then on 1st April became April Fool's Day.

The teacher made the statement on Friday

Pm a Friday morning, yesterday=Thursday and tomorrow equals Saturday.

So, if yesterday was tomorrow means if Thursday was Saturday,then tomorrow (next day to Saturday) would be Sunday.

Marvel1206:
Tuesday. If Monday(Yesterday) was tomorrow, today would have been Sunday

Not correct....Remember today must be: Sunday..if Tuesday were correct, then today will be Thursday.

I think, the statement was made on Friday...proof:
Let assume the statement was made on a Friday.
1. If Yesterday (Thursday) was tomorrow(Saturday).
2. Meaning Yesterday is now Saturday.
3. If Yesterday was Saturday, meaning today is Sunday.

Since today is Sunday, it means our initial assumption is correct and the statement was made on Friday.

on MONDAY
Re: Can You Solve This "Simple" Quiz? by linearity: 1:05pm On Apr 01, 2017
Sweetestrose:


The day that the teacher made that statement is Tuesday.

Solution: The statement above says "If only yesterday(Monday) was tomorrow, Today(Tuesday) would have been Sunday", so, if it will be Monday tomorrow, Today would be Sunday.

So, We now know that tomorrow is Sunday. Then with the statement "If only yesterday(Monday) was tomorrow", we can say that: Yesterday = Tomorrow Yesterday = Monday So, if yesterday was Monday, Today is Tuesday. Therefore, it was Tuesday when the teacher made that statement.

Nice try, but wrong sha.

The question said, today is Sunday, but you have today as Tuesday.
