Does the earth have a binary twin sun?

The Earth has no sun at all - Sol is the centre of the Solar System, therefore influences all planets, and, AFAIK, is not a binary system. I certainly have never seen more than one when sober.

Why do planets orbit the sun

In a word, gravity. The solar system is thought to have formed from a rotating disk of dust and gas with clumps in it. As these contracted the whirling sped up, like a skater drawing in her arms.

There is a law called the conservation of momentum which meant that when planets eventually pulled together in lumps, due to gravity, the spinning of each, and the spinning around the Sun, stayed on.

The Sun has held all this activity to itself in orbit by its massive gravity, which is still felt way out past Pluto.

What is the biggest planet?

The biggest planet in our solar system is Jupiter. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun and the largest in the solar system.

Astronomers say they have discovered what appears to be an entirely new kind of planet, an extra-large gas giant unlike any known world in our solar system or beyond. The planet, dubbed HAT-P-1, is located some 450 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lacerta.
It is the largest planet ever discovered and boasts a radius nearly 1.4 times larger than Jupiter's.
HAT-P-1 is also the least dense of all known planets.
