For all those whos calculating age in days plz read the question again it has clearly mention when Sameer was asked about his aged “he replied” 17 or 18 days baby cant speak even, so how can he replied in complicated way. did u replied in riddle way when u were 18 or 17 days old?? isn’t funny hahahahaha

i think sameer’s date of birth is 14th december

19. Taha December 8, 2012 at 12:02 AM #

His birth date is 31st December

20. Taha December 8, 2012 at 12:00 AM #

31st December

21. Karunakaran December 7, 2012 at 3:09 PM #

The only possible date is 29th december, and the question is asked on 31st december. That means he is 15days old on 29th, 16days old on 30th, and 17days old on 31st december, and 18days old on next year ie on 1st january.

22. Mohd December 6, 2012 at 12:29 AM #

His birth was on 31/12. And the date of asking is 2 / 01 so by the next year will start on a difference of 3 years

23. Omar Amer December 3, 2012 at 2:09 AM #

He was born on December 31st and he was asked about his age on January 1st. So the day before yesterday which was December 30th he was 15 years old. The day after he turned 16. And by the end of the current year he’ll be 17 and next year as he said he’ll turn 18. That is what I came up with wishing its the right answer.

24. Haseeb sajid December 2, 2012 at 1:56 PM #

Because sameer’s birthday is on feburary 28th

25. Abdul Azeem December 2, 2012 at 1:05 PM #

His birthday might be on 31st December…. and the day he said this was 1st January..

Accordingly the day before yesterday i.e 30th Dec. ,he was 15 . The next day i.e 31st Dec, he turned 16. The present year Dec. 31, he will become 17 and the next year, he would turn 18.

sameer is 17 years old today
yesterday is last year where Sameer was16 years old
the day before yesterday which is one year earlier he was 15 years old

29. Anehi December 24, 2011 at 5:53 AM #

He was asked on the the 31st of December when he was 17-day old. So, two days back, 29th December of that year, he was 15-day old. The next day, 1st January of a new year, he will surely be 18-day old. Therefore, he was born on the 14th December of the year he was asked the question of his DOB.
