import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing HijrahDate Object
        HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
  
        // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
        HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
  
        // getting id of this Chronology
        // by using isLeapYear() method
        boolean flag = crono.isLeapYear(1444);
  
        // display the result
        if (flag)
            System.out.println("this is leap year");
        else
            System.out.println("this is non leap year");

    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing  HijrahDate Object
        HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
  
        // getting HijrahChronology used in HijrahDate
        HijrahChronology crono = hidate.getChronology();
  
        // getting id of this Chronology
        // by using isLeapYear() method
        boolean flag = crono.isLeapYear(1200);
  
        // display the result
        if (flag)
            System.out.println("this is leap year");
