Trick for solving questions where year is 2000 or more

  1. Consider the last 3 digit of the year. If it is less than 100, add 100 to it. For example- In year 2012, the last three digit is 012 which is less than 100 so add 100 to add and make it 112 (100+012). Once done, divide it by 4 and keep the result.
