    You should add the part where you calculate the day of the specified month. Oh, and some indentation. Oh, and you should remove all that extra gotoxy/clearscr crap so people that want to help don't have to dig out their old DOS compilers.

    Code:
    char *days[7] = { "Mon", "Tues", "Wednes", "Thurs", "Fri", "Satur" "Sun" };
    printf( "Day %d of the month of %s is %sday.\n", day, monthstring, days[ (number+start) % 7 ] );
    Something like that should be fine.

    > what should i add in my program?
    Indentation.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
