## SOLUTION

The exam schedule on Saturday is of 100 minutes.
There are two exams scheduled between Hindi exam which is for 100 minutes and History exam which is for 60 minutes.

 Day Exam Time Wednesday History 60 min Thursday Friday Saturday Hindi 100 m

Maths exam is for less than 60 minutes and is scheduled immediately before English exam.
English exam is before Sunday and there are two days between Sunday and Maths exam.

 Day Exam Time Wednesday History 60 min Thursday Maths 50/40 min Friday English Saturday Hindi 100 min Sunday No exam

8th march is not Sunday and an exam of 40 minutes is scheduled on that date.

Case 1:

 Date Day Exam Time 2 Wednesday History 60 min 3 Thursday Maths 50 min 4 Friday English 5 Saturday Hindi 100 min 6 Sunday No exam 7 Monday 8 Tuesday 40 min

Case 2:

 Date Day Exam Time 2 Tuesday 3 Wednesday History 60 min 4 Thursday Maths 50 min 5 Friday English 6 Saturday Hindi 100 min 7 Sunday No exam 8 Monday 40 min

Economics exam which is for 75 minutes is not scheduled on 2nd march, Case 2 can eliminated.

Here, we can fill the rest of the slots easily with Science exam on Tuesday and duration of 90 min. for English exam.
The final puzzle is as follows:

 Date Day Exam Time 2 Wednesday History 60 min 3 Thursday Maths 50 min 4 Friday English 90 min 5 Saturday Hindi 100 min 6 Sunday No exam 7 Monday Economics 75 min 8 Tuesday Science 40 min
