Leap years have 366 days instead of the usual 365 days and occur every four years. How do you remember if it’s a leap year? It’s quite simple: If the last two digits of the year are divisible by four (e.g. 2024, 2028, 2032) then it’s a leap year. Century years are the exception to this rule. They must be divisible by 400 to be leap years. According to these rules, the years 2000 and 2400 are leap years, while 1800, 1900, 2100, 2200, 2300, and 2500 are not leap years. As a bonus, U.S. leap years almost always coincide with election years.

The correct answer is 2056.
