Hi Nishant, I have a code named "Leap Year Test" in my profile which might help answer your question. Let me know what you think about it.

Leap years are according to two rules.
(a) When the last two digits are 00:- If the last two digits are 00, then the year is leap year if the year is divisible by 400. For example:- The year 2000 is leap year but 2100 is not a leap year.
(b) When the last two digits are not 00:- If the last two digits are not 00, then the year is leap year if the year is divisible by 4. For example:- The year 2012 is leap year but 2014 is not a leap year.

First, we check that if the year is divisible by 100 and then by 400, it is a leap year.
