As Tcp is byte streamed protocol it means we numbered each byte transmitted.

Here Sequence field is 32 bits, So we can uniquely numbered or identify =232 Bytes

Bandwidth is 100 Mbps.

Means 100 Mb   data is transmitted in 1 sec

(108 )/8 byte     data is transmitted in 1 sec

1 byte data is transmitted in 8/108 sec

232 byte data is transmitted in  (232 *8)/108 sec=235/108 seconds

Solving it you will get 343.597 seconds
