400 months are more than 33 years, in particular 400/12 = 33.3 that is 33 years + 1/3 of year, that is 4 months. In 33 years it will be June + 4 months, it will be October. Answer D!

Because if you divide the number of month by 12, the duration of an year in months, you get 33.3 which means 33 exact years plus 0.3 years that is how to take 1/3 of a year (1/3 = 0.33).

Any number of months that is a multiple of 12 will take us to June again. Thus, we have 12, 24, 36, … that take us to June. Since 400/12 = 33 remainder 4, we see that in 33 x 12 = 396 months, it will be June, and 4 months after that it will be October.

Answer: D
