C++ Exercises: Check whether a given year is a leap year not

C++ Date: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a C++ program to check whether a given year is a leap year or not.

Sample Solution-1:

C++ Code:

``````#include <iostream> // Including the input/output stream library

using namespace std; // Using the standard namespace

// Function to check if a year is a leap year or not
bool is_leap_year(int year) {
if (year % 400 == 0) // If the year is divisible by 400
return true; // It's a leap year
if (year % 100 == 0) // If the year is divisible by 100 but not by 400
return false; // It's not a leap year
if (year % 4 == 0) // If the year is divisible by 4 but not by 100
return true; // It's a leap year
return false; // If none of the above conditions match, it's not a leap year
}

// Main function
int main() {
int y; // Declaring an integer variable to store the year

y = 1900; // Assigning a year value
cout << "Is Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 1999; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2000; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2010; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2020; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

return 0; // Return 0 to indicate successful execution
}
``````

Sample Output:

```Is Leap year: 1900?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 1999?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 2000?  Century of the year: 1
Is Leap year: 2010?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 2020?  Century of the year: 1
```

Sample Solution-2:

C++ Code:

``````#include <iostream> // Including the input/output stream library

using namespace std; // Using the standard namespace

// Function to check if a year is a leap year or not
bool is_leap_year(int y) {
return y % 400 == 0 || (y % 4 == 0 && y % 100 != 0); // Returns true if the year is divisible by 400 or divisible by 4 but not by 100
}

// Main function
int main() {
int y; // Declaring an integer variable to store the year

y = 1900; // Assigning a year value
cout << "Is Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 1999; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2000; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2010; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

y = 2020; // Assigning a year value
cout << "\nIs Leap year: " << y << "?  Century of the year: " << is_leap_year(y); // Display the year and check if it's a leap year

return 0; // Return 0 to indicate successful execution
}
``````

Sample Output:

```Is Leap year: 1900?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 1999?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 2000?  Century of the year: 1
Is Leap year: 2010?  Century of the year: 0
Is Leap year: 2020?  Century of the year: 1
```
