Agree with 10.

First convert the distance to miles
220 yard * ( 1 mile / 1760 yard) = 1/8 mile

Then covert the speed to per second
45 mile / hour * (1 hour / 3600 seconds) = 45 mile / 3600 seconds

Time it takes = distance / speed
= (1/8 mile) / (45mile / 3600 seconds)
= (1/8) * (3600/45) seconds
= 10 seconds
