7 days.......

how !?? Can u explain
7 goat eat 7 grounds..means 1 goat eat 1 ground...ok
then 7 grounds in 7 days... that means each ground eaten by them in seven days...so
1 goat took 7 days to eat a ground...So whether it is 5 ground or 10.. 1 goat eat 1 ground in 1 day..so 5 goats eat 5 grounds in '7' days....

7 days
How? 7 goats/7 days=1 goat/day
1 goat/day /7 fields=1/7 field per day per goat
5 goats/5 fields=1 goat per field
1 goat per field/(1/7) field per goat per day=7 days
