    The correct answer is D) 24, 365.

    The Earth takes approximately 24 hours (or about 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds) to complete one rotation around its axis. This period is commonly referred to as a day.

    The Earth takes approximately 365.24 days (or about 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds) to complete one revolution in its orbit around the center of the solar system. This period is commonly referred to as a year.

    It’s worth noting that the exact duration of a year is slightly longer than 365 days, which is why we have leap years every four years to account for the additional time.
