### Can there be 8 years gap in leap year?

Indeed there can be 8 years between consecutive leap years. The
rule is that a year is a leap year if it is divisible by 4 and
not divisible by 100, or if it is divisible by 400. For
example, 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not leap years but 1600
and 2000 were leap years.
The last occurrence of an 8-year gap between consecutive leap
years was therefore 1896 and 1904. The next occurrence will be 2096
and 2104.
