Answer: (4) Saturday 

Solution:-
100 years contain 5 odd days.
Therefore, Last day of 1st century is Friday.
200 years contain (5 x 2) = 3 odd days.
Therefore, Last day of 2nd century is Wednesday.
300 years contain (5 x 3) = 15  =  1 odd day.
Therefore, Last day of 3rd century is Monday.
400 years contain 0 odd day.
Therefore, Last day of 4th century is Sunday.
This cycle is repeated.
Therefore, Last day of a century cannot be Tuesday or Thursday or Saturday.

Hence, the correct answer is option (4) Saturday.
