Right or wrong comes second. How about posting your steps/approach?gauravtiwari89Id say 10807 seconds
Am i right ?? 
gauravtiwari89Ok. Here goes..
I assume the time is 6:59:53 (h:m:s)
so 7 seconds to strike 7.
Thus to Strike 10 it should take 3 hours and seven seconds
coming to (60*60)*3 +7 =10807 π

U din mention that after 7 sec it gonna be 7 hrs or 35th min! SO i assumed that after 7 sec its gonna reach the number 7! For reaching 10 it needs another 15 sec which means totally it needs 15+7=22 sec to reach the 10!!!!!!!yudii think all have gone through this before...

rahul.mudaliarI think what gaurav said is right i.e 10807sec.

Prasad Ajinkyayudi,the problem is open to various interpretations. Is the real problem that? π

technospartan10.5 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gohmYep, I'm with the 10 sec camp. My view is it is saying that it takes 7 seconds for the clock to chime 7 o'clock= 1 second a chime for each hour of the time. Therefore it will take 10 seconds for it to chime 10 o'clock based on the 1 second per hour chime speed.
