I did put a lot of my head to figure out the centurion year division rule and I guess was quite lazy to even look it up. Was quite intrigued to find out that all this resulted because of an error in the Easter date calculation! Thanks for the article and the nice explanation. ðŸ™‚

I understand it’s very unlikely, but if in CAT they ask questions involving the year 1900 and they don’t mention anything about it being leap year or a normal year, what should we assume? (reason why I’m asking this is 90%+ will assume it to be leap year)

ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ Great way to explain it. Thank you so much!

Hi J I have a doubt regarding my strategy for quant i was getting 50+ marks in previous pattern mocks and now in new pattern they are fluctuating from 35-48 the problem is that even after the time limit gets over I am able to solve 3-5 questions. so if I could save my time the chances are I can increase my attempts but even after giving mocks and sectionals I am not able to do that can you suggest something for the same….

Hi J,
The method discussed in the last question of counting the leap years is prone to errors as dividing by 4 will not always lead to the correct no of leap years.For eg from 1818 to1857 there would be (57-14)/4=39/4=9 leap years but that would be erroneous as there are in fact 10 leap years.

There’s no “assume” here. Whether a given year was a leap year or not is a fact. Would anyone tell you that 2020 is a leap year in the exam?

50+ in 60 min to 35-48 in 40 minutes. I don’t see a problem here? Stop getting panicky over nothing and focus on polishing the skills.

“I assume you know their names!” Hahahaha, that wit though.

Where did I divide by 4? Just manually check the first and last leap year! Quicker anyway.
