  1. The Earth revolves around the Sun in anticlockwise direction and it takes about 365 days and 6 hours to complete one revolution. However, for our convenience, these extra 6 hours are added every year for the next four years to create a total of 24 hours or one more day in February. This extra day in February comes after every four years and the year in which it occurs is known as the leap year; it has 366 days in total.
