Ok. 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 😁

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!!!!!!!

Yep, 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.
