How many leap years do 300 years have?

A.

74

B.

75

C.

76

D.

72

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Given year is divided by 4, and the quotient gives the number of leap years. But, as 100,200 and 300 are not leap years => 75 – 3= 72 leap years.

OR

A 300-year period can have either 72 or 73 leap years. Each 400-year cycle of the Gregorian calendar has 97 leap years, so the average number of leap years for a 300-year period is 72.75.
