I got E. Thursday

It goes this way:
Every year has 365 days and a leap year has 366 days.
if we divide 365 by 7 we get 1 remainder and
if we divide 366 by 7 we get 2 remainder.
Means, every year day will increment by 1 for the same date and for every leap year it will increment by 2.

So, after 5 years(from June 25, 1982), the days increment should be 5+1(of leap year) i.e 6 days.
So, June 25, 1987 will fall on Friday+6 days = Thursday.
