There are 366 days in a leap year: 52 weeks and 2 more days. So, 52 Sundays and 2 days.

These 2 days can be: {Mon, Tue}, {Tue, Wed}, {Wed, Thu}, {Thu, Fri}, {Fri, Sat}, {Sat, Sun} and {Sun, Mon} (7 cases). In order to have 53 Sundays we should have either {Sat, Sun} or {Sun, Mon} case.

The probability of that is 2/7.

Hope it's clear.

P.S. Please read carefully and follow: rules-for-posting-please-read-this-before-posting-133935.html Pay attention to the rule #3 (the name of a topic MUST be the first 40 characters (~the first two sentences) of the question).
