Even though the word 'hour' is starting with 'h', the pronounciation of 'hour' is 'our' because 'h' is silent. Moreover, 'o' is a vowel. So, we write the article 'an' before the word 'hour'. 

Ans.:  an hour

why we can't use "for" because for is being used for an indefinite time like given in this question??
For is already given in question. You have to use articles from the option!
