It must be one hour and a half.

In these type of sentences numeric adjective comes before the noun.

Can we use "will not take " in place of "will not need" ?

Amit said: (Apr 22, 2012)  
We use plural noun with fractions and decimal over one. So the correct answer be one and a half hours.

It should be "more than one and half an hour".

Yeah! we could use both 'need' or 'take', but in this type of question we should go for finding out error in sentence not main verb type!

Why can't we use "don't need" in place of "will not need"?

Renu said: (Nov 20, 2014)  
It is more than half an hour.

Why we have used "A" half hour correcting this sentence please any one can explain?

Shikha said: (Jun 13, 2015)  
It is "One and a half hours" because you have more than one hour (one hour plus half an hour) hence implying that it is plural and not just a single hour.

Both "one" and "a half" are describing the noun "hour", so two.

Priksha Vij said: (Sep 14, 2015)  
It should be "The test will not need more than one hour and a half to finish".

It should be The test will not TAKE.

So, Option A is correct.
