## Answer: In a leap year an extra day is added to the month of February.

Go through the explanation to understand better.

**Explanation:**

It takes approximately 365.25 days for Earth to orbit the Sun which is also called a new term called a solar year. The possible solution to this extra part of the day in a year was resolved by rounding off 365.25 days to 365 days and to make up for the missing partial day, we add 1 day to our calendar approximately after every four years. That is a leap year.

Leap years occur every 4 years. In fact, 2020 is a leap year and so 2024 is also a leap year. Except that, every 100 years, special rules are there. For example, 1900 wasn't a leap year, but 2000 was a leap year.
