    Hello guys ,,, how r u?

        if ((year % 4 == 0) && (year % 100 !== 0) && (year % 400 == 0)) 
     
        {
        return true;
        }
     
        else if {

    public static boolean isLeapYear(int year) { 
     
        boolean leap = false;
     
        if ((year % 4 == 0) && (year % 100 !== 0) && (year % 400 == 0)) 
     	{
        	leap = true;
        	}
     
        return leap;
        }

    try that. it should work but i am not possitive as i do not have access to a computer with a jdk. If it does not work i shall try it at 12 ish and repost with a working code.

        	}
     
        return leap;
        }

    The symbol == means equal to and != means not equal to and the code you had written had !== meaning not equal to equal. (doesnt make much sence in english either. )

    you could keep your original code also it would work as long as you fix the !== to !=
