The obvious answer to this question would be a year or 365 days, but the Universe is much more complicated than that. If you had to extensively research the exact time it took for Earth to orbit the Sun, the answer you would be left with would be 365.256 days - this is excluding a leap year that has 366 days with February having 29 days instead of the usual 28. If you had to convert the days into hours you would be left with 8766.144 hours for one complete orbit around the Sun. The Earth orbits the Sun in a counterclockwise direction which is why we see the Sun "rising" in the East and "setting" in the West.
