The answer is 5 seconds..
Distance travelled in first three seconds=s=1/2at2=1/2 * 10 *32=45m
Distance travelled in nth second=u + g(2n-1)/2
as the magnitude of last second is the magnitude of the total time taken.
Distance travelled in nth second=Distance travelled in first three seconds=45m
=>u + g(2n-1)/2=45
as u=0
=> g(2n-1)/2=45
=> n=5
so the last second is 5th second so the total time taken is 5 seconds.
