Question/Topic: Leap year 
Answer/Pointer: Leap year: a span of 366 days occurring in years divisible by four, such as 1976 and 1984. Even century years, such as 1600, must be divisible by 400. Dates in ordinary years move forward a single day each year, but during leap year they "leap" forward two days following the last day of February, the 29th.
