Hi there,
I did not understand the rules used for the leap year problem ...
I used to think that leap year occurs every 4yrs ... Could any one explain this a bit more ... Also if a particular year is divisible by 4 and 100 then is'nt divisible 400 ?? I'm confused with the problem specification ....

A leap year occurs every 4 years. However if the year (like 1900) is divisible by 100 but not by 400, it is not a leap year. But if a year (like 2000) is divisible by 4 and by 100 and by 400, it is a leap year.

The style guide also gives some example code related to this.
