    OR
    Give me a day's time. Yes. Possessive form. Give me the time of a (one) day (for example, to complete a task, respond etc.).

    With an explanation.

    Thank You.

    If I wanted to say that I needed one (more) day in order to complete a task, I would just say "Give me a day" or "Give me one day".
