Puzzle | Yesterday Was Tomorrow

Statement :
Your friend said, “If yesterday was tomorrow, today would be Friday.”
On which day did your friend make this statement ?

Solution :
Wednesday

There are two ways to interpret this.

  1. If x + 1 == x – 1
    Then
    x == x – 2
    x – 2 = Friday
    x = Sunday
  2. If x – 1 == x + 1
    Then
    x == x + 2
    x + 2 = Friday
    x = Wednesday

Option 1) makes sense and hence the answer.
