    1. Hi Lokesh,
      There is a hint at the last line "All plays in the SAME month" and also mentioned about "Monday to Sunday"
      which clearly mentions Sunday is 31st and coming from bottom
      30th will be Saturday, 29th will be Friday so on...

      Now coming to puzzle they mentioned plays are held in "Sets" so from given you can easily get the answer...
