(8) What is the registration number of her certificate? __________

Answer:

(1) 2/5/2002 shows that Bincy was born on 2 May, in the year 2002.

(2) Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002. From 2 May, 2002 to 1 May, 2003, her age will be 1 year From 2 May, 2003 to 1 May, 2004, her age will be 2 years Similarly, from 2 May, 2002 to 1 May, 2008, her age will 6 years (2008 − 2002) Thus, she will be 6 years old on 2 May, 2008.

(3) She was born in the year 2008. Her age in 2052 will be 44 years (2052 − 2008 = 44) So, Bincy will be 44 years old in 2052.

(4) Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002. Year in which she will be 8 years old = 2002 + 8 = 2010 So, on date 2/5/2010, she will be 8 years old.

(5) From May to June, she will be 1 month old. From June to July, she will be 2 months old. From July to August, she will b 3 months old. So, Bincy will be 3 months old in August 2002.

(6) At present, the year is 2014 and her birth year was 2002. So, her age in 2014 = 2014

-2002 = 12 years She is 12 years old in the year 2014.

(7) Bincy was born on 2 May, 2002 and the birth certificate was issued on 5 August, 2002. Now, May is the 5th month of the year and August is the 8th month of the year. So, the number of months after her birth when her certificate was issued = (8

-5) months = 3 (8) Registration number of her certificate is  815/02
