    Answer for question 2.

    Leap years are years with 366 days, instead of the usual 365. Leap years are necessary because the actual length of a year is 365.242 days, not 365 days, as commonly stated. Basically, leap years occur every 4 years, and years that are evenly divisible by 4 (2004, for example) have 366 days. This extra day is added to the calendar on February 29th.

    the answer to your 7th question is, they are called, "Leaplings".

    Nope, they would then have 366 days each year.

    I will answer your 2nd question....it was created because there are 365.24 days in a calender year, that is the reason why we have leap years every 4 years to bring the calender back into synchronization.
