The hubble constant has the dimensions of

${ time }^{ -1 }$

SOLUTION
Hubble's law states that the red shift in light coming from distant galaxies is proportional to their distance from the earth.
$v = Hd$
where $H$ Hubble's constant.
$\therefore$ Dimension of $H = \dfrac { Dimension\quad of\quad v }{ Dimension\quad of\quad d }$
Dimension of  $H= \dfrac { { \left[ LT \right] }^{ -1 } }{ \left[ L \right] } = \left[ { T }^{ -1 } \right]$
