In A special Date problem is this valid input or not 11670384 ?

As I understand we are given valid date , but this kind of 11670384 input also can be. Little confused...

    No, this input is invalid. By definition, a valid date is in format ddmmyyyyy. Therefore, dd = 11, mm = 67 and yyyy = 0384. Both dd and yyyy satisfy the required range, dd is between 00 and 30, and yyyy is between 0000 and 9999. However, mm does not satisfy the required range between 01 and 12.
