How To Tell Siri to Set an Alarm on Weekdays Only

You likely find it convenient to use Siri to set an alarm just by saying, "Set an alarm for tomorrow morning at 6 am." However, you can also instruct Siri to set an alarm for more than a single day, including setting the alarm for every day or for weekdays only, which is significantly faster than checking every day individually when manually setting an alarm in the clock app.
