On what planet a day consists of two years?

This planet goes so quickly around the Sun and so slowly around its axis that it takes two years for a day to occur...

From the information I've got after searching, there is no planet that takes two Earth's year to complete one day. The following information I've got:

1 day in Mercury- 58 days 15 hours (of Earth) (88 Earth's days= 1 year in mercury)
------------Venus- 243 days (224.7 days=1 year, one day in venus is equal to 1 year in Venus)
------------Mars- 1.02587 days (686.98 days= 1 year)
----------- Jupiter- 10.5467 days (11.86 Earth's years= 1 year)
-----------Saturn- 10 hours 32 minutes (29.7 years=1 year)
-----------Uranus- 17 hours 24 minutes (84.3 years=1 year)
-----------Neptune- 16 hours 6.7 minutes (164.79 years=1 year)
------------Pluto (not a planet, but dwarf planet)- 6.4 days (248 years= 1year)

Note: 1 DAY is completed when a planet completes one ROTATION in its own path whereas 1 YEAR is completed when a planet completes on REVOLUTION around the sun.  So, don't get confused after seeing the above data.

You are right. Yet, the question on the planet's day wasn't about the equivalent to years on the Earth. It was about its own years and days))) So, it's Mercury.

Venus has the longest day ... a day on venus is longer than it's year but not 2 years.

One day on the Mercury corresponds to 176 days on the Earth and two years on the Mercury. It is interesting to observe how the change of the day and the night happens on this planet. Each one continues 88 earthly days, which makes one planet's year. read more
