I am usually spread over five.
On rare occasions, like in 201, I occupy exactly 4.
But I am the only one that can never be in six.

Who am I?

The answer is:

February

Because:

It is usually spread in 5 weeks. In the year 201 it occupied 4 (if in your country the week starts on Sunday). However it can never occupy 6 weeks. All other months can.

  • $\begingroup$ Correct! If nobody would have guessed it I would have given a hint about the start of the week ;) $\endgroup$ – PirateSoul May 22 '15 at 12:42

    $\begingroup$ This is the reason that I couldn't figure it out, my week starts on monday so it wasn't the same in 201. I forgot about the week starting on sunday $\endgroup$ – Wouter May 22 '15 at 13:00
  • $\begingroup$ how about year 2015....it still satisfies if week starts on sunday...:) $\endgroup$ – user2408578 May 22 '15 at 13:51

    $\begingroup$ @user2408578 Yeah, there are probably more than a few years that satisfy this, but 201 makes it harder to guess that it refers to a year. $\endgroup$ – dmg May 22 '15 at 13:52
  • $\begingroup$ yep its hard to guess 201 as year....i was initially thinking about some pincodes here...:D nice thought though. $\endgroup$ – user2408578 May 22 '15 at 13:56
