Expert Answer:

dear student,
the volume of water  in the tank when the level in the tank is 21 cm will be
=25 x 22 x 21
let it takes t hrs.
so vol of water coming out in t hrs from the pipe=25 x 22x21
in t hrs the water coming out of the pipe
= cu m...using 1km =1000 m
 cu cm...(using 1 m =100cm)= 25 x22x21 cu cm
solve this and get the value of t in hrs, multiply it with 60 to get t in min and that answer you can multiply to get t in seconds.
