Explanation

Option 1 is Correct Answer.
There are 3 leap years in between 1995 and 2007 which are 1996, 2000, 2004. You have to minus (12 + 3) from Monday.
1 ordinary year = 365 days = (52 weeks + 1 day.)
1 ordinary year has 1 odd day.
1 leap year = 366 days = (52 weeks + 2 days)
1 leap year has 2 odd days.
From 2007 to 1995 There are 12 Yrs.
1996, 2000 and 2004 are leap years Therefore number of odd days = 3 * 2 = 6
Remaining 9 years have 1 odd day each = 9 * 1 = 9
6 + 9 = 15 , 15 divide by 7 = 1 i.e one day previous of Monday
Hence Sunday is Right Answer.
