how do you know when to use "ans" or "années"?

AFAIK, it has to do with whether you're speaking of specific years or just years of time. I know that sounds a bit odd to an English speaker, but their similar use of jourée is 24 hours of time, rather than "the previous day".

Well in this case ans should have been accepted.

...pendant des années? (any opinion?)
