Hello GIL.

I understand your question, and the answer to both is: use the pedal! bar 10 like all the subsequent ones, are correctly 9/8 bars. The only "error" could be the lower chord Gb-Db which should be tied to a dotted quarter to read it clearer, but unfortunately that's how Debussy wrote it

In other words, here is how to play it: you play the first lower chord with your left hand and with the sustain pedal (Gb-Db), then play the next chord always with your left hand (Db-Gb-Bb-Db).

Please, let me know if you need further help, I will be happy to assist you.

Thank you again!
