my older brother is born on a leap year, so he is only a few years old, but James mentioned above, is 25 years old. Leap year is every 4 years

I don’t think James could have been born on February 29, 1900 as February 1900 did not have 29 days

• Ryver

Actually, 1900 is a leap year (it’s divisible by 4). My guess is he didn’t celebrate his birthday because he probably died.

You are correct, Anant.

James was lying, 1900 was not a leap year.

You are today’s winner.

And for the record:

There is a leap year every year whose number is perfectly divisible by four – except for years which are both divisible by 100 and not divisible by 400.
