In a leap year, a day is added to what month?
A leap year repeats itself after every 4 years and it has 366 days.
Answer: In a leap year, an extra day is added to the month of February.
Go through the explanation to understand better.
The earth takes 365 and a quarter day to go around the sun. An ordinary year is taken as 365 days only, leaving the quarter. The four quarters are added together (1/4+1/4+1/4+1/4=1) to make an extra day every four years. This day is added to the leap year. Therefore, there are 366 days in a leap year.
Thus, in a leap year, an extra day is added to the month of February.
