At 6.00, the clock should chime 6 times.
total time spent from the beginning of first stroke to the end of the last stroke = 22 secs
total number of time intervals in 6 strokes = time taken for a stroke + time between two strokes = 11
So time taken in each time interval = 2 secs.

At 12.00, there will be 12 strokes. It means there will be 23 time intervals.
So time taken for all strokes = 2 *23 = 46 secs.
