Neither is correct.

You don't solve exam. You take/sit an exam. Or you solve a problem.

3) You have one day to solve the problem.

4) You have one day to take/sit the exam.

You don't need any pronoun or preposition.

Neither of the two. You should say:

  1. You have one day to solve the problem.
2
  • Why is the first not correct? solving the exam is on a specific day.

    "on" will be used in adverbials of time: The problem will be solved on a certain day. In the structure you proposed, "on" is not needed or used.
