We have 2 leap yere here : 2000 and 2004.

Leap year divisible by 4.

So, the day in 2005 has 8 days difference : Friday.

Wdyt?

If a year is divisible by 400, it is a leap year.
If a year is divisible by 100, but not divisible by 400, it is not a leap year.
If a year is divisible by 4, but not divisible by 100, it is a leap year.

The day on which a particular date falls will be shifted by two days from one year to the next if the next year is a leap year, and by one day from one year to the next if the next year is not a leap year. For example, Nov. 18th fell on a Thursday in 1999, and a Saturday in 2000 since 2000 was a leap year. It fell on a Saturday in 2000, and a Sunday in 2001 since 2001 was not a leap year.

As there were two leap years (2000 and 2004) between 1999 and 2005, Nov. 18th shifted by 8 days over the 6-year period. If a date is shifted by 7 days, it will fall on the same day of the week. So, the net effect was to shift Nov. 18th by one day. Therefore, Nov 18th fell on a Friday in 2005, and the answer is D.

Answer: D
