## Solution

Here on seeing the sequence, we can figure out that the days in a month are given.

The first term is for 31 days in January, the second term is for 28 days in February assuming that it is not a leap year, the third term is for 31 days in March, similarly, 4th term is for 30 days in April.

**Hence the next term would be 31, for the number of days in May.**

The number of days in each month is given as follows:

January-31

February-28(if not a leap year), 29(if a leap year)

March-31

April-30

May-31

June-30

July-31

August-31

September-30

October-31

November-30

December-31
